GREGORY BÜTTNER – Every

(1000Füssler)

Büttner is a multimedia artist from Hamburg who specializes in audiovisuals and is also the founder of this stimulating label, whose 3-inch CD series presents works by people on the fringes of electronica and acousmatics. “Every” was created by radically altering and manipulating the voice of Peggy – a friend of the composer – who was singing Depeche Mode’s “Everything counts”, of all things. Apart from a short segment at the end of the record, you could never guess that the ethereal evolutions and amorphous parabolas heard in this piece derive from vocal origins; this mysterious enigma is a hide-and-seek game behind the corners of silence, where focused waves of perplexing frequencies introduce us to parallel galaxies of dazzling alienation. Very well made and totally pleasing.
