Following his critically acclaimed "Irony is" album
on Mute Records, the musician
behind 2nd Gen
presents here his new project, Uniform,
with the first album of this mysterious act. "Not a word":
a disc that does contain words, but will you find them? Who knows
what they are saying, and why?
"The whole process was a seemingly stereotypical artistic
one in that it truly felt as though I had nothing to do with the
tracks and that some other force was involved,” says Uniform
about "Not a word". Made of echoed beats, of short outbursts
of noise, of ghostly voices and extremely detailed background, this
album delivers through his 16 tracks a complex assemblage of feeling
and atmospheres, a deep vault of carefully arranged effects and
Listening to "Not a word" is a process that reminds of
walking in a glass house. The structure and foundation are strong
and massive, but precise sounds come from everywhere, in a game
of reverberation in which the listener is forced to take an active
role. How can you be sure that you will have caught the whole of
it at the end of your visit? The whole is more than the sum of its
component, but are you aware of all of them?
"There are secrets embedded deep within the tracks",
It is a rare thing that a musician daring to experiment as much
comes up with something both as challenging and pleasant, both interesting
and enjoyable. Now it is up to you to hear how deep these tracks
will take you. Life vest not included.
