Genre/Influences: Ambient, industrial, experimental.

Background/Info: This work is collaboration between Portuguese projects Rasalasad and Shhh… The CD is available in a small cardboard box. This collaboration is part of a series (cf. “Thisobey”) featuring label artists with other, invited ‘guests’. On “Apophenia” two labelmates have been featured.

Content: “Apophenia” is covered by an obscure and mysterious sound atmosphere. It sounds definitely ambient-like and yet joined by industrial noises and electronic manipulations. The 4 tracks are pretty diversified, in the end revealing an experimental and minimalistic sound creation.

+ + + : This is a successful collaboration between two artists who definitely appears to be complementary. I like the versatile character of the composition, but especially the electronic exploration and manipulation the tracks have been made. The slow rhythm makes the production more accessible.

– – – : “Apophenia” sounds rather complex and needs a few listening. It’s not exactly the most typical release so it’s hard to label.

Conclusion: “Apophenia” is a pure Portuguese experimental work featuring two artists with a similar feeling for sound creation and minimalism.

Best songs: “Trans – Mathematics”, “Mirror World – Don’t Panic”.

Rate: (7).
