Eugene Ughetti - Agglomeration Of Measurement [Room40 Promo]

Released via Australian label Room40 on July 31st, 2k20 is "Agglomeration Of Measurement" , the latest six track album outing created by percussionist Eugene Ughetti in cooperation with composers Anthony Pateras, Liza Lim, Robin Fox alongside others to further explore the hypnotic possibilities of solo percussion performance, starting with the calm and crystalline, outerworldly and multi-layered "Twin Resistance" which rather resembles a floating, chiming electronic composition than a pure percussion piece whereas the subsequent "March Static" combines tense, mourning, post-apocalyptic atmospheres, probably created from warped and warbled vocal choirs with lamenting strings turning hopeful and war drums blown over from afar. "Transducer (Finale)" sees Eugene Ughetti on a droning, minimalistic Ambient tip, "Tremolo" follows on a similar, yet more solemn path with its tender Ambient movements and brittle, time dissolving sonic waves building up and slowly fading out into near or total silence  whereas "An Elemental Thing" deeply indulges in minimalist scrapings and fast, processed percussive micromovents and finds its one on one continuation in "Hypnagogics" which adds only a few morphed and scattered elements to the formula of stripped down scraping and stressed material sounds before harling back to the crystalline chiming of the original opening tune. Deep.
