Foxy Digitalis Love:

More outer space synth explorations to be found on cassette tape, this one comes from a man named Lee Tindall, here performing under the guise of Belarisk. It’s another nice entry to the ever-growing greatness that is the label Fadeaway. The music carries with it flavors of Emeralds, Megabats, Panabrite and the like, so if you’re a fan of any of those, you’ll find a lot to love here. But unlike any of the aforementioned, Belarisk keeps dynamics relatively flat. Instead of focusing on compositional arcs, this tape works more on exploring the textural potentials of the vintage synthesizers (specifically, an ESQ-1 and AX60/80 according to the j-card insert) used in the recording. Loops are set up, then far out soloing hovers over the top in lego block builds. No impressionistic blends here, rather sharp and bulky sonic architecture make for something of a futuristic art deco style that provides plenty of interesting points of aural observation. And close listening (or at least loud, volume cranked) let’s you get inside the sounds a little bit to discover the massaging qualities within. And if you can get there, unlock what’s underneath, hypnotism is an easy thing to fall into as well, letting these humming drones and the light-bright loops of sound beams break out from their mono mastering to push both eardrums into gentle submission. The history of electronic music has shown us the limitless possibilities of synthesized sound, and that sentiment remains anything but boring in 2012—Belarisk is one of a legion of vintage gear-mongerers further delving into the incredible potential instruments like these contain, all the while painting brief works that hang like framed pictures in an art gallery and give a sense for a nostalgic adherence to 70s electronic pioneers and futuristic foresight simultaneously. - Crawford Philleo
