Album Review

Gray Code – “Floating Point” – [Circumvention Music]

Max Level   4/19/2010   A Library, CD

Electro-acoustic constructions straddling the line between improvised music and academic sound exploration. Electric guitar, clarinet, and drums provide the raw material, but when these three mad scientists plug in their tech-gizmos, it’s a whole other thing. The players have sensors attached to their instruments, responding to their body movements, making the sound more three-dimensional or something like that. Serious tweaking, and the sounds can get pretty intense. I don’t know what to think because most of what I know about music is being subverted here. Actually, I do know what to think: these guys are not afraid to work outside the box with their artistic concepts, and it’s a safe bet they are also way smarter than I am.
