Artist: This Is What I Hear When You Talk
Title: Untitled
Format: 3" MiniCD
Label: Inner Demons Records
Rated: *****
This Is What I Hear When You Talk is the work of Dan Fox, also known as Loss, Fail, and the man behind Inner Demons Records. This is his harsh noise wall project, so let’s see what the wall looks (and sounds) like this time. This disc consists of one track, entitled “HADRON_COLLIDER->FX70->PS-5->FX69B->MIMIQ->π²->OPERATION_OVERLORD->EM600_≈21” (how’s that for a radio-friendly title?). This is a rumbling wall of noise that at first glance seems to stay the same throughout. Perhaps it is like the Kanizsa triangle illusion, in which your brain begins to fill in the implied missing elements, but it sounded like other elements were beginning to come into the composition as it moved along. The result is a rather hypnotic piece that lulls you into it. I could definitely see this working as part of a live sound installation as well. As I noted in my review of the last disc by This Is What I Hear When You Talk, I tend to lean more toward noise with more variety, but I found this to be pleasant listening and if you prefer more static walls of noise this is one to check out. This album weighs in at 21 minutes and is limited to 42 copies.
