Regler – “Regel #6 (techno)/Regel #7 (drone)” – [Quemada Records]
Regel #6 and #7 are the continuation of Mattin and Anders Bryngelsson’s Regel project where the concept is to take the essence of a musical genre by distilling and mimic:ing it into the core meaning of it’s conceptual music, or the rule of the music style addressed. This time they attacked techno (on A side) and drone music (on B side.). Basically you take the intrinsic meaning of the style and follow it’s guiding principles with the bare minimum parts, as long as possible. It might sound academic, or even repeat-full boring, but at the same time it’s a fascinating attempt to create art of art itself into what is the meaning of it. To some degree, the listener might even get disoriented due to the repetitions with subtle changes that might be heard at the third listening.
