Tine Mariane Krogh Madsen - Compounds [Block4]

Released via the long-standing, ever active and currently Aalborg-based Block4 label on September 13th, 2k23 is "Compounds", the latest full length album effort conceived by Danish artist, composer and researcher Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen. Over the course of six extended compositions and a total playtime of rough 60 minutes Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen presents her pieces in the chronological of their creation throughout a period spanning from 2015 to 2023, starting from the highly conceptual "Stone-Score" with its minimalist, spatial approach of in situ recorded stone clangings followed by the piercing midrange sawtooth dronings and fluttering noisy swells of "Little-Fists" which evoke a threatening feel of impending doom and apocalypse. Furthermore the albums longest piece named "In-The Rupture" presents grinding cavernous subsurface Noize signals of thundering, reverberating qualities garnished with what could be described as a metallic, almost sci-fi-leaning edge, "Water-Fire-Stone-Metal" brings forth more spacious scrapings, intense Noize movements, violent percussive outbursts and occasionally leaking gaseous fumes most likely to be appreciated by the headstrong and innately unafraid before the concluding "Kivimeditaatio" indulges in dynamic electrostatic ground signals and an overall frosty exoplanentary vibe for a closing. We're in for that. Go check.
