N Chambers - Air Example (LP)
On constant rotation around here, Norm Chamber’s (Panabrite, Jürgen Müller) latest release Air Example, on the always on-point Love All Day, is the best modular synth album I’ve heard yet. A far cry from predictable filtered steps and grating tones, the album is deeply atmospheric, with endlessly complex details like the layers of plant-life in an old-growth forest. The cover is reminiscent of Autechre’s IDM masterpiece Amber, and although in many ways coastlines apart sound-wise, there is a similarity in terms of turning electronic music tropes inside-out, and creating something wholly new by pushing music technologies in new emotive directions. Highest recommendation.
