‘If I made music, it might sound something like this….’
‘We wrote about Tangent’s debut 1mk2 (Mindtrick, 2013) described as “…a slice of cosmic detail, broken into ten distinctive fragments that melt together,” and now they’ve reemerged (unsurprisingly) via Tympanik Audio’s conduit for enraptured sonic chaos.
Transience doesn’t veer too far from its previously established orbit. Similar soundtracks for cosmic events such as supernova’s, gamma-ray bursts and flickering neutron star’s are all tucked away in a dozen emotive-electrical forms which move through atmospheric layers and broken-beat experiments.
Filled with hypnotic curiosity, lifeforms emerge from worlds yet undiscovered as mechanical elements blend into crimped low-end distortion and dissolved ambient textures collide. Both fragile and frantic, defused and deconstructed, Transience is more of a full-course audible experience through distant galaxy’s than it is a terrestrial jaunt. Best consumed as a whole and not in part, evaporated electronics meld into one cohesive fabric. But as the title of this album suggests, perhaps this massive sound structure is in fact just a brief expedition through (personal) subconscious space. If so, then it has accomplished just that. Either way, Tangent combines dense musical forces that compliment the circular cosmic spot we all inhabit.’
