Album Review

Traversa, Martino – “Critical_Path” – [Die Schachtel]

cinder   11/9/2012   A Library, CD

The lengthiest track, number one, takes you on a trip. It’s like you’re listening to an old Italian man telling you an important story, but then your ecstasy starts to kick in. It starts out normal, then slowly his words roll, rumble, reverb, echo and warble over each other. Like your mind is stuck in a re-winding tape, inside the soudwaves of your computer. The next two tracks have spooky tendencies. Sounds sting in and out like a wasp in slow motion. Track 3 brings some heavy terror midway, dark rolling thunder. The last is a bit itchy. Microchip butterflies fluttering around your ears, quipping and quirping. It’s 253 milliseconds of noise from an old vinyl recording. For the love of hissss and record snap crackle and popping.
