From a Swiss artist comes this digital pastiche that touches many points hovering around with no chance of decisive definition. “Shimmer” is variegated and alluring; its timbral fluctuations remind of minimalism, tape composition a la William Basinski, impressionistic acousmatics. Jasch works without presumption, exploring concepts, trying to give cohesion to a mass of potentially straggling sounds; he certainly succeeds through surprising assignments and surefooted perspectives. Mostly made of malleable materials, this record keeps your interest level quite high and it’s surely not likely to be used as background music.
