"Lasting Clinamen" is another step further in one of the most adventurous Polish experimental musician's quest for new sounds. In the four pieces on this CD Robert Piotrowicz takes his explorations of modular analogue synthesiser to a new level. While his previous releases were action packed experiments with the possibilities of the instrument, the new one is a statement from an artist who knows exactly what he wants to achieve. Robert has mastered his skills and feels confident with his tools, enough to focus on the very nature of carefully selected and crafted sounds.
This album is all about power. The raw power of sound, it's presence and change in time, it's depth and inner structure, it's pulse and volume. Masterful building of tension has always been one of Robert's music qualities. This time he achieves it by means of balancing the static and dynamic elements of sound. Powerful drones of the first and the third track, solid as a rock, reveal rich and detailed texture of constantly fluctuating, layering and oscillating sonic details. Growing in volume, they keep on evolving until they vanish. Repetitive, yet shifting pulse of the second track, vibrates with unearthly bass, mesmerizing and frightening. The last track builds form alien echoes floating over low frequency soundscape to another mighty manifestation of eternal drone, only to fade away in silence.
This recording confronts you with the sheer sound in it's purest form, as powerful as it gets. Overwhelming, sometimes painful, always beautiful.
