Nicholas Thayer - In:Finite [Oscillations 006 Promo]

Scheduled for release in three digital parts on July 14th, August 11th and September 8th, 2k23 respectively and combined for a full physical CD album by the Oscillations label is Nicholas Thayer's "In:Finite" series which combines a set of pieces all commissioned for a dance piece of the same name. Comprised of fifteen compositions in total the series sees Nicholas Thayer exploring a sonic realm arking from unexpectedly heavy and heavily compressed digital Dubstep in "On Refracting" to minimalist Space Ambient in "On Carrying" and sci-fi structures from a space-faring future to be found in "On Oiling" whereas "On Floating" brings forth elegic Modern Classical string melancholia, "On Being" indulges in tender, ethereal and minimalist Ambient textures once again whilst "On Variegating" experiments with filtered and processed Modern Classical sequences evolving into cascading crystalline Synth fountains and the subsequent "On Growing" even evokes the idea of a Boards Of Canada x mid-90s Autechre fusion cut just to name a few. Quite a diverse range of styles covered in this set which works surprisingly well as an album.
