With this release, attenuation circuit goes one step further in its project of uniting diverse practitioners of the global noise/experimental underground in collaborative projects. In this case, the result is a remarkably cohesive album of finely spun drone music that works both at high and lower volumes, rather contemplative and quite removed from the noisier sides of the featured artists.
“Vertigone” by GX Jupitter-Larsen & Ace Farren Ford is composed of long tones in shifting higher frequencies, but not in the piercing CM von Hauswolff range. While relying on synthetic sounds, the microtonal richness is comparable to compositions based on acoustic instruments, as by composers such as Phill Niblock or If,Bwana. The magisterial calmness with which this strangely harmonic piece unfolds will certainly come as a surprise to those who associate GX Jupitter-Larsen’s name primarily with his noise work under the Haters moniker.
“Electric Jackass” by Le Scrambled Debutante featuring EMERGE is a fitting counterpiece for its flipside. While often into hectic cut-up collages, this time the plunderphonic collective fronted by Allan Zane, based in North Carolina, have decanted the material from an improvised session to distill the most introspective, even melancholic bits, such as some wistful accordion passages. The sound material supplied to the mix by their trans-Atlantic collaborator EMERGE introduces some more rhythmic elements that sometimes evoke the ghost of a deboned, yet partly revived drum’n’bass track.
