r-n107 | snd. atavism | compact disc

“Atavism is the fourth album from snd. It reveals, explores and reinterprets the fundamentals of its origins interpreted in a new time and a new context: simultaneously iteration, re-interpretation and a process of invention; both an allusion to the origins of a type and the genesis of something new. The geometric forms and rhythmic assuredness of first-wave techno combine with the linear clarity of digital minimalism to expose themes whose rhythmic and harmonic immediacy and ostensive sparsity belie the complexity of their form. In a cycle of exposition and development materials are slowly drawn through processes of compression and expansion, inversion and reversal, atomization and consolidation, to return shaped into new orders – a process of sonic origami. Over 16 untitled pieces, themes are developed slowly to the point of obliteration only to be re - layered and rediscovered in new surroundings.”
raster-noton has been following the creativity of the boys behind snd for years. the special radicality of their work gains our full respect. the early release “blir. edits” (r-n064) which was part of raster-series documents this fundamental interest. we are proud to continue our collaboration by publishing a “real” snd-album today.
