SCATTERED PRACTICES sees Ezekiel Honig going much more minimalist and electronic in his compositions. There's less warmth here than on his previous works, and the tracks run together, forming a larger picture, rather than discrete moments. The "Going Sailing Refrain" triptych, for instance, has a bit of musique concrete to it without a traditional melody. "Books on Tape" is similarly spare, with a throbbing beat, 2 or 3 chords, and a modified vocal sample. But that's not to say that the album is completely devoid of warmth: "Homemade Debris" is bathed in it, with a moderate 4/4 beat to ground the gentle synth washes, until it floats out on a pure ambient note. "Concrete & Plastic," as well, glides on its suspended tones, whlie "Fractures & Fissures (Part 1)" seems to take a note out of Tim Hecker's notebook. "Edit Edit Edit" closes the album with a quiet grace. Quite nice overall.
