Artist: VENROOY, ESTHER
Title: To Shape Volumes. Repeat
Format: CD
Label: Robo
Country: Belgium
Price: $14.00
"Esther Venrooy resides in a constant snakepit of modular movements and sonic acupuncture. An imaginary. almost filmic world where gameboys morph into howling wherewolves. ravening the shattered bits of saxophone sounds with vague buzzing and popping crackles. Anchored by the subtle use of harmony and dynamism. she opts for processed meditations in maze examples. combining more traditional electro-acoustic composer techniques with frigid. slightly harsher shots of deconstructed digital fuckery. She sure sharps some sonic pencils with swirling layers that are cut up. mangled and dragged into the present. Not your average run of the mill cocktail waitress becomes Hollywood coddle story but pretty goddamn addictive blackened ambience. Bathing in a selfconsciously dense atmosphere. loaded with contrasting metallic chunks of noise. she manipulates the rumbles with rich expression and acute arrangements that develop into a desolate electronic landscape. The balancing cord between audio and visual thundering she aspires towards. Her approach never wears out and diving into the realms of film fragments and striking field recordings. she pursues a journey where the source material is anything but traceable. All that megaton sonic alchemy weighs up and shows this is way more than an angry lady that turned her back on academic audio processing. the kind of sweaty dust that belongs in retirement homes. Next thing you know you are fragmented into a non-executable floorplan. The storm has spent itself." - Audiobot.
