Spare Parts

R-N 088CD R-N 088CD

Spare Parts is the long-awaited new album from the sonic laboratory of Austrian-based "psycho-physio" musician Pomassl and the latest example of his interest in deconstructing musical structure and testing the limits of hearing. Spare Parts still retains his distinctive style, but with much more maturely-arranged elements and carefully structured sections, compared to his earlier output. Dabbling and blurring experimental and advanced pop. It is Pomassl's full-length debut for the German Raster-Noton imprint, after several collaborative contributions for the label. Producing this album, Pomassl has explored his arsenal of armaments with the initial use of original generators and synthesizers (Polivoks, Ritm-2) from Soviet Fabrics, manufactured in the '80s, beside his usual combination of prototypical, self-customized electronic instruments versus state-of-the-art technology. Abstract pieces such as "Atenna Atoll" and "Allied Nippon" are placed next to experimental tunes such as "L-R He Cntriller," and piercing electro-beats such as "Parasite Battery." Conceptual parts and short particles are contained in pieces such as the very short intro track "Nitro," and "Blank Jack" and "Valsalva Maneuver" (a maneuver used to clear the ears when ambient pressure changes, as in diving or aviation) function as intro and interludes. The most anomalous track "Qaraghandy Storm" closes the album with a far-off electrical desert storm. Pomassl is renowned for re-training listeners on how to listen, and how to exercise and utilize the most hidden and delicate structures of the innermost inner ear.
