    Fankbonner, Loy – “El Pabellon ” – [Azul Discografica]

    Hermits in NYC? Hermetically sealed sounds trapped in his apartment and
    then dissected and resurrected and injected via computer processing.
    His apartment thus opens up like another world…this is a tidy form of
    “noise”, often focused like a laser. Even the “whiter” shades of noise
    end up feeling more gentle, as the title track sort of blows over and
    through you. “Atardescer” leads off the album with some similar sound
    pressure that then resolves into a tiny, tinny chop-bleep, before then
    moving into a dizzy memory of your kitchen and silverware singing to
    you watch out for the big return rush of white noise at the end. Next
    up “Jornada” journeys through a box of cereal to get the free toy
    (evidently a contact mic) out…that’s only for a bit, then some clean
    ringing tones try and communicate, dealing out sort of Close Encounter
    chords. “Vecindario” might be a basketball knocking at the door, either
    way it is the closest you’ll come to a “dance remix” track here ;>
    Sirens are set off, and some how the ball sets off a razor right by
    your ear…like an old-school barber. “Noche de Primavera” is my
    favorite piece, with a spring ringing to clean up your consciousness.
    Again, the noise Fankbonner constructs is very precise. High pitched
    circles, that get telescoped by deeper sounds…a chorus is summoned
    from a stereo somewhere. Sounds like Pan Sonic and Arvo Part swapped
    pants on this cut…very nice. Out on a new label partially run by
    Fankbonner as I understand it. Pretty cool noise/soundscupltures
    that evolve while never calling on the onslaught destroyo beam.

    “Vecindario” leaves me in goose bumps. I shudder when I imagine what kind of noise monster Herr Fankbonner will unleash on the world. Fankbonner must be german, does anyone know?
