Novasak "Alpha" CDr
Less hardcore in conception while more anarchic in execution, "Alpha", the new (solo) album by Novasak, comes after a plethora of split releases mostly on his own Swamp Of Pus label. The three pieces/parts of this recording signify the artist's regard of sonic events as cosmic occurrences in meta-scientific context. By sonic scope, we get an electroacoustic work framed by rough sound produced by the means of hardware processors fed with waveforms from analog generators and input from contact microphones attached to wood and glass. From the moaning rubbery basses of part 1, to the harsh explosions of part 2, up to the granulated texture of part 3, "Alpha" craves for holistic listening... preferably on headphones.
