Artist: PYLONE (@)
Title: Grounded Hands
Format: CD
Label: Sound On Probation (@)
Rated: *****
After the first release titled "Black grains" released on 2006, Laurent Perrier's Pylone is back with a new adventure in sound. The five long tracks of GROUNDED HANDS create a disturbing sound canvas made by micro variations of crackling sounds with the add of low frequencies sub-sounds. Alternating layers of sound that at first create chaotic moments and then on tracks like "Idem part.1" seem to be more "organized" with recurring percussive sounds and cyclic sounds, Pylone is able to build a sensation of uneasiness and alienation. If the first two tracks are more chaotic and fragmentary, the aforementioned "Idem part.1" and the 19' long "Dense des couteaux" (the ones I preferred) create a particular interesting ambient i.d.m. sound. Having a structure that you can actually follow these two are more "enjoyable" compared to the first three tracks.
