(Conv.Net Lab)

Another short composition by sound artist Friedl, “Converge” is mostly made of micro structures of quiet feedback and barely audible crackling in a well designed alternance with longer conjectures of metallic dragging and softly resonant timbral phantoms. Like in his previous “Raumzitate”, the external ambience comes out as basic in the overall listening process; there is no complacency in these naked sounds, only the curiosity of seeing their air-rippling effect once they’re almost randomly thrown in silence, just like children throw a small handful of stones in a calm lake, breaking the tranquillity just for those few seconds needed to understand they’re alive. While listening to “Converge”, reflection and looming remembrances seem to be unavoidable.
