    Boomkat Product Review:
    Mesmerising, sui generis noumena from a mongrel duo of Püdel regulars, F#X/E.K.G. and Nika Son, a.k.a. C for Nina and good news' V I S label, together building on a collaborative practice developed during and since they were commissioned for an installation in a Hamburg gallery.

    Their Tennõ EP is a result of haptic and synthesised inputs generated from a variety of tape-machines, filters, self-made physical resonators, synths, drum machines and vocals, yet you’d be hard pushed to pick out where and how those “instruments” are used in the abstract, amorphous fabric of their compositions.

    Submitting to their sound is like going in blind, giving yourself up to their fancy. Across the front Geroll revolves a central knot of a hip hop break which seems to freeze and thaw in and out of focus like some lost joint from Spectre’s The End album left to fend for itself on the high plains, ending up stomping itself into an acid wormhole.

    On the other side, even the rhythmic handrail is extinguished with Diphtongues, plunging us into deepest indigo drones and a bath of glossolalic texturhythm acutely recalling Tongues of Light’s amazing Channelled Message at the End of History record, before spinning out along multiple vectors at once like a six-handed Valerio Tricoli in Tennõ.

    Another peach from this brilliant label.

about

C was formed by F#X/E.K.G. and Nika Son in late 2014 when they were given the chance to create an electro-acoustic space in a gallery room in Hamburg. Continuously working together since, they compose musical sculptures and collages that are not easily pigeon-holed.
They use a wide variety of analogue sound generators, from tape-machines, filters, self-made physical resonators, synthesizers, drum machines as well as the human voice. During the process of development, almost every element undergoes several stages of deformation, inventing denatured structures and spaces that can soothe and disturb at the same time.
Spacial textures, granular synthesis, abstract percussion, frozen sound, ripped voices.
Their first EP will be released in autumn this year on the Hamburg-based label VIS.
