SATOSHI TAKEISHI: Premonition DL Clang
Japanese-born Takeishi has over 30 years experience in producing experimental music, which holds a candle to many a genre. Utilising analogue and electronic instrumentation, the results have been somewhat varied and I wish the same could be said with this latest album; as there is little that shines throughout.
‘Prologue’ and ‘The Visitor’ provide a web of pulsating, yet pointless drones; and it isn’t until the simplistic keys of ‘Abandoned Shadow’ that we get anything resembling something of worth, that can be defined as actual music.
‘Glimpse of Silence’ is a patch of electronic nonsense as is the rest of the album. Hums, bleeps and throwaway random self-indulgence that bears little worth, with even less to say about it.
