Arovane & Porya Hatami - Organism_evolution [Karlrecords Promo]

Put on the circuit via Karlrecords in April 2k18 is "Organism_evolution", the new collaborational album effort created by Berlin's Uwe Zahn a.k.a. Arovane and the Iranian underground artist Porya Hatami. Churning out 23 tracks in only 55 minutes playtime, many of them under the mark of two minutes, they're providing a next evolutionary step in the aesthetics of last years "Organism" album, focus on techniques of granular and/or modular synthesis, spectral processing and others to create a spatial, clean, futuristic and sci-fi sound field that is surely fascinating in terms of its highly developed production value and, in parts, a re-evolution of the Clicks'n'Cuts genre e.g. in tracks like "Creature_015", yet fail to deliver a coherent theme or at least a few outstanding trademark tunes throughout the whole album which, due to this lack of structural coherency, seems to be like a study in sound design in 23 parts rather than an unmitigated body of work and therefore leaves us with a bit of a hollow, unsatisfied feel after an extended listening session.
