AGUIRRE RECORDS (BELGIUM)
joins the Aguirre catalog with a stunning album full of clear cosmic tones for the new space age.
, as the title suggests, is about different periods in time. "Pangaea" is ancient earth, "Hermits" is based on a panel of the Ghent Altarpiece representing Renaissance Europe, "Spaceship" is the future, and "Immortality" is an even more distant future where consciousness has been uploaded to computers and people live without bodies. Pulse Emitter (
from Portland, Oregon) began working with synthesizers while in music school in the '90s and took the Pulse Emitter name in 2003, creating synthesizer pads and patterns which drift through cosmic and nature settings. A veteran of the noise scene of the mid-2000s, the music has returned to something more melodic and layered in recent years.
has said "No one is making synth music that feels so organic, so rapturous and so 'in tune' with the contours of outer and inner space as Groetsch."
"I've been a fan of Daryl Groetsch AKA Pulse Emitter's synthetic concoctions for years now. Hailing from the hotbed of Portland, Oregon, his work is almost unparalleled when it comes to modular synthesizer excursions.
is a 40 minute journey into cities that will soon be lost and overrun to the wilderness. The thematic idea behind the album is nature's inevitable reclamation of the concrete jungles we've constructed and amassed. Where Groetsch truly succeeds on
is creating such an organic landscape with his synth. His work here is highly focused and dialed-in. Through the static and electronic waves something warm and almost triumphant emerges. Heavy saw waves weave a chaotic mass of urban debris, smoothed over by the sine waves of time. Barriers fade away as they are consumed by sonic vines that find their way into all these aural cracks. The result is oddly beautiful in an almost post-apocalyptic way. Nature always wins."
