(No Label)

Described as a soundtrack for sexual stimulation – the title should tell you something – and also being an installation concept by artist Poka-Yio, “Balls” comes on two CDs – 25 minutes of sound in total – lodged on a bare cardboard sheet in an ultra-limited 50-copy edition. The first part, “For a quick stimulation” is a slightly distorted drone in an electrostatic context; beautiful, if a bit short at little more than 4 minutes…The remaining 20+ minutes of the second disc, “For a prolonged stimulation”, bring us back to the exciting subterranean vibrations of “Vento elektra”: a continuous pumping of black blood, sometimes accompanied by a stinging, tinnitus-like high frequency, is sufficient to get your equilibrium lost in the deep waters of useless detail’s confrontational void.
