Dr. NoiseM - Studio Works 24 [Dr. NoiseM Tapes]

Recently released via Dr. NoiseM Tapes is "Studio Works 24", the latest in an ongoing series of albums which presents us with ten brand new tracks the ever active producer cooked up in his lab. Opening with "Dead Filters" we're confronted by a nine+ minutes excess of scraping Noize accompanied by a set of cold, alienating strings, "Dead Kapitalism" caters heavy pulses of low-end HarshNoize and an overall atmosphere comparable to his 'The CDr A-B-C'-series whilst the "Death Of A Chinese Clown" is more of a solemn, partly even scientific affair in terms of Cold - or better: Death - Ambient, literally. "Freedom" means another powerful, electrical HarshNoize buzz mixed with highly distorted text-to-speech fragments, "Plasticine" seems to depict the process of decay itself through an ever changing intensity and a wide range of dynamics whereas "Radio Freedom" pierces ones ear with loads of, well, amplified radio static, high pitched frequencies and fragments of what might be recognized as distant fragments of Classical music whilst the "Teenage Mutant Noise Turtle" lives of a most brutal curtain fire of highly compressed sonic events per second and "The Scottish Highlanders On Dope" serve a surprisingly melodic, yet totally absurd, vary-speed and vary-tuned, glitched interpretation of a single, fully obscured musical motif. Finally "TRIQ_WQ" is an excellent blueprint for Dark Ambient and "Untitled For Harry" once again is going back to the trademark aesthetics of 'The CDr A-B-C' for a full 17+ minutes. Good stuff for die-hard fans of the artists ever growing body of work.
