Mikael Stavöstrand is well-known in the Swedish experimental
and electronic scene, not only as an artist, but also as founder
of a label. His new album is going radically on a new way, a lot more minimalist
that his previous works,halfway of the abstract electronic musics and the
swarming trails of various digital experimentations. The tracks are lovely
repetitive, without being boring though. This music takes its strength
in its simplicity, keeping on its creator's sound researches only. Some
delicate jangle sometimes serves to constitute an efficient rhythm, constructed
around scientists electronic dosages. This album shines by its constancy,
its indescribable attractive power. The strength of these compositions
only results from only one thread, ready to break itself at all times,
delicate and fragile, and yet the accident doesn't occur.... An admirable
work of experimentation, on a music orchestrated with tiny little sounds,
collected one to the other, for a result of a rare consistency. Repetitive
and intoxicating, this album is a pure jewel of electronic and minimalis
music. This record has been released by the ownlabel of Stravöstrand,
Mitek, claim to the promotion of Scandinavian artists in this musical style.
