Is this the ghost of a beat you just heard? Are
these voices you perceive between the precise glitches of the "Apparitions".
Microscopic noises and dynamic clicks guide you through a tunnel
of razor sharp walls. For "Apparitions" takes place indeed
in a glasshouse of small glitches, clicks. All very carefully edited,
and rendered in a very evocative art piece. Above the low floating
frequencies constantly pop the remains of rhythms, "Apparitions"
of a beautiful and abstract music.
Cordell Klier is one of his kind. It is not enough
that he is managing his own label, Doctsect, successfully spreading
the word about many experimental artists, and everything without
a website or any advertisement. It is also not enough that he has
proven to be a talented noise musician with his Vedisni and Kreptkrept
projects. He had to come out with his first album under his own
name. After many years of constantly being the promising newcomer,
the sensation on the obscure compilations and demos, Cordell Klier
comes finally under the spotlight for what he stands for: sombre
and extremely precise glitches arranged with the care of a brain
Many times started again, many times improved,
"Apparitions" is the most accurate example of Klier's
talent and skill. Glitchy, hanging, colourful but sharp and dynamic,
the 13 tracks of this CD album take his music to yet a new level.
Building of a calm atmosphere, "Apparitions" never ceases
to unsettle the listener. Your attention never escapes, and you
reach the end of "Apparitions" without having been lost
or having been bored once, quite a prowess when it comes to clicks'n'cuts.
Once again, was it the ghost of a beat? Was it
the remains of a sample?
And don't forget to play this CD loud.
