|arbor (usa) #arbor 096 lp|
infinity window “artificial midnight” long playing record
- sheets of face (7:56)
- internal compass (7:36)
- skull theft (11:10)
|january 2009 release ; ... the mass-market debut of taylor richardson (sunburned member) & dan “oneohtrix point never” lopatin’s space-madrigal unit infinity window ...|
whereas dan’s solo work has a more melancholy flair to it, these are straight atmosphere / lift-off burners, with layers upon layers of almost subliminally warbling synths cut with straight arpeggiations and gated patterns ... a few pages torn from the early tangerine dream / popol vuh cookbook(s), sure, but there’s enough in the way of modern synth-music sensibility (nary a phase-lock, fm, or pulse-width modulation to be found) at work here as to lift this out of the bin of pure pastiche and into the realm of pure mind-expansion ...
highly recommended !!!
|arbor96 infinity window - "artificial midnight" lp|
new york synth duo infinity window have been crafting their game for well over a year without much documentation. comprised of dan lopatin (oneohtrix point never) and taylor richardson (prehistoric blackout), this lp shows them at the pinnacle of self-realization. equally influenced by john carpenter and the taj mahal travelers, they create traveling music; music that has the power to transport and overwhelm the listener with vibes outside of those presently available to them. the a side consists of two tracks, both clouded in a heavy haze of fog, dark and heavy though their clarity exists underneath the shroud. the b side’s lone track “skull theft” is the full circle realization of the first two tracks: a light is illuminated and the fog begins to clear. mastered by keith fullerton whitman.
in an edition of 500 lps with full color pro-printed cardboard sleeves and printed labels with art by robert beatty (hair police / burning star core).
