You may not have come across Boundary before, but chances are you have heard the production skills of the man behind the project alias, Montreal’s Ghislain Poirier. For an electronic producer who has no issues changing sonic direction under his own name multiple times, for the first time Poirier has opted to release an album in more anonymous fashion. Boundary’s 13 tracks are as anonymous as their namesake. Boundary is a techno album, and an old-school one at that. Boundary offers up IDM as it was initially designed, not as the absolute negation of the dance floor it became for the headphone crowd, but as a cool ulterior vision of how dark timbres and complex rhythms could alter a club before minimalism was in vogue. In other words, IDM before the “intelligent” component took on much greater value than the “dance” portion. Think Autechre’s early EP’s or Warp’s first installment of the classic Artificial Intelligence compilation.
