Jliat, Hilbet's hotel/Abhuta-parikalpita CD/12"
There's something primal about a lengthy drone, something spiritual
about the rhythmic, cyclical blowing that creates the continuous sound
of the didg from discrete breaths. Jliat understands the emotional
impact of the monotone and exploits is on "Hilbert's hotel", his
electronic drone limited only by the physical capacity of the compact
disc itself . The single unchanging deep tone has most effect when it
disappears into the background, only to be brought sharply back into
focus by the alteration of some external sound, leaving you like the
proverbial rabbit gazing at the oncoming headlights.
The 12" reprises the concept with a harsher, trebly "virtual guitar"
white noise wash, one per side although the difference in tonal value
makes this unlikely to be assimilated into background noise. And it's
a difference that Jliat appreciates, hand-picking his sonic tools to
tune your mood. Or is it a load of pretentious arse?
