Album Review

Porter, Roly – “Aftertime” – [Subtext]

Roland Blunt   7/17/2012   12-inch, A Library

Debut solo album from Roly Porter: british sound artist, and former member of the innovative dubstep duo Vex’d. Astonishing intermingle of ondes martenot, dulcitone, melodica, viola, violin, and cello…with dark ambient textures, power electronic noise elements, samples, and random rhythmic minimalism that fabricates 10 slanted, preoccupied, passive aggressive sonic happenings on tenterhooks. Unusual propagation of classic instruments with digital processing and exploitation: filmic, chambered, overwrought, seething, hesitant, entropic moments that sizzle, scuff, nod, gist, throb, groan, and pilfer about structure.
