Cari Lekebusch – Cygnus
Like some ancient techno-infused ritual, Cari Lekebusch’s “Cygnus” delves deep with an inviting physicality to its grooves. Volume needs to be on full blast for these are songs whose detail is of the utmost importance. Everything relies upon rhythm and texture. The exploration of sound defines the tracks for they take echo, distance, space, and merge them into something that teems with life. By opting for such a style the pieces radiate tremendous amounts of energy. At no point do this highly intricate soundscapes stops they constantly shift into dazzling new territories. Really existing in its own universe there is little else that possesses such a strange darkened energy.
Not a moment is wasted as Cari Lekebusch begins things with the title track “Cygnus”. Downright chaotic in nature elements of the sound collide and bounce off each other in the distance. Tempos are brought to the absolute brink while various samples flutter in and out of the mix. Quite elastic in the way the groove grows ever more intense this style merely references elements right off in the distance while everything else orbits around rhythm. Offering a little bit more in terms of the total space is the slower “Anatidae”. For this piece, Cari Lekebusch lets the sound sprawl out a bit more, opting for some industrial elements to enter the fray. This wall of sound approach works wonders all the way to the song’s finale.
Cari Lekebusch offers a full-on assault of the senses with the muscular power of “Cygnus”.
