So I already covered the long-format Oval-description thing before (here) as well as his collaboration with Japanese artist Eriko Toyoda ("So," here). But this is a single song post and this song is all we care about today.
The first track of this CD, which I listen to far more frequently than the rest of the album (you can only handle so much), is absolutely a masterpiece of abstract electronic music. Now before you think, "Wow, what a dubious distinction," know that I am including Aphex Twin, Autechre, Boards of Canada, and all sorts of noise bands as well as crossover acts like The Wind-Up Bird, Daedalus, Along and others. It's actually quite a large field! And Oval is a sort of black sheep/superstar in it. His music (which he prefers to be referred to as "audio" - fair enough) is utterly unlike anything else and he deserves credit for that even if it weren't totally awesome.
Its initial, robotic stutter gives me shivers every time, and the nameless, processed instruments which accompany it are freaky and beautiful. It starts abruptly and ends even more so, and it's hard to say whether the song would be better off being shorter or longer. In any case, it's up to you to decide, and whichever you choose, know there's a whole album of stuff just as cool, even if even I don't listen to it that much. It's good to know it's there, anyway.
