Album Review

Mori, Ikue – “Class Insecta” – [Tzadik]

Max Level   11/6/2012   A Library, CD

Lots of burbling and clicking on this 2009 release of solo laptop electronics. Most tracks are heavily percussive with either machine-made beats or glitchy patterns combined into rhythms and offbeats. The sounds are subtle yet constantly moving. There seems to be some kind of an animation angle to this– perhaps these are soundtracks to animations/videos about insects? If so, these pieces would be perfect for that– bustling insects in groups of thousands, winged insects flitting here and there… I’m a huge fan of Ikue Mori; nobody else does quite what she does.
