r-n077 | senking. list | compact disc

is there beauty in the threatening? with list senking introduces 40 minutes of the darkest matter and reckons: yes.

on list he varies and experiments with a - for raster-noton - frightening diversity of sounds. he reveals the pieces as sound-collages, as quotes, which seem to refer to splatter movie and film noir. following the tremendous plot of his endtime-sujet, he persistently welds together sound spaces in order to compress them later into overwhelming drone-sounds. these as such, then go to serve a fundamental purpose, as an environment for minimalistic themes and melodies, always to be driven by the ever present slow-beat of the pieces. nonetheless the syntax, the destiny of each single piece is highly varied and has the appearance of a much more mature composition, compared to his earlier works.

remarkably the technical aspect does not take a leading role in senkings anti-utopia visions. it’s about substantial and age-old patterns, about impulses and the inevitable. comparable to a tracking shot, the sound masses are flowing grey and drama-laden towards their final purpose - seeming to follow the ductus of the opening piece.

senking aka jens massel lives and works in cologne. under the moniker fumble and kandis he has released on several labels. after trial/cdr35, forge/cdr47 and tap/cdr53 list is the fourth senking album on raster-noton.
