Todd Anderson-Kunert - Past Walls And Windows [Room40 Promo]

Released via the ever active Australian label Room40 in July 24th, 2k20 is "Past Walls And Windows", the latest longplay outing created by minimalist composer Todd Anderson-Kunert whose most recent exercise spans six brand new tracks spread out over roughly 38 minutes runtime. Tackling some deep and somewhat nebulous concepts we're not about to embrace in this review the music Kunert presents ranges from brittle but beautiful, yet hardly ever evolving Ambient dronings and harmonies in the tender opener "A Single Remark" to raw vintage low end pulses and computational machine communication sequences as well as ethereal minimalist floatations in the subsequent "Left  Hanging" whereas "A Sense Of Place" presents the most stripped down take on cold, futuristic, score'esque, sci-fi leaning and danger inducing soundscapes one could ever think of. Furthermore "4 Better Left" brings forth a sequence of spine-tingling bass pulses alongside crystalline overtone layers and huge drums blown over from beyond afar, "For Those That Need" goes in deep with single note movements alongside heavenly, time defying-atmospheres before the final cut that is "An Echo" follows down a similar, yet slightly warmer and more organic path. Is this 38 minutes only or a comforting eternity spent in cryostasis? Hard to tell.
