isn't a new name for zymogen listeners as we already heard his collaboration with David Velez aka Lezrod
on Data Transfer (zym007
). In that track ("Ramute") there were evident recalls of his past works, in fact Stephen (under the monicker SW
) had produced two idm gems for Retropublik
some years ago, but since then nothing came out...until Monocline, a complete change of direction.
This album has a solid concept behind it, explained by the title; monocline is a term to indicate "a geologic structure in which all layers are inclined in the same direction".
These tracks could be interpreted as these different layers which match up in the monocline fold...composed with different simple elements, at last, are a totality of abstract substance. Music floats as a "unicum" and simply shifts, track after track, into various basic components: melody, deep silences, found sounds and pure sine waves.
