Reviews

  • ultimathulerecords's avatar
    Originally an Alto Stratus idea, the Biomechanoid project became something different. A concept based on the paintings of H.R. Giger, it resulted in vast tapestries of sound, meshed with electronics and soundscaping, a special island unto itself. From the early rehearsals through to mix-down it took over a year to complete. A great deal of preparation and invention went in to montaging sounds, fusing analogue and digital textures, with mechanical and organic properties, into a music of melody, dissonance, rhythm and form. Truly biomechanical music! The results are often unnerving, with an underlying elusive beauty.
    In the music you may hear influences from Conrad Schnitzler, early Klaus Schulze, quite obvious nods to the French electronics of the mid-late 70's like Heldon, Verto, Pôle, Bernard Szajner, as well as touches of musique-concrete and the avant-garde. Overall it is one of the most melodic focused of projects by the Freeman brothers, with some diversions heading towards space-rock.
    A curious coincidence was the release of an album by Brainticket leader Joel Vandroogenbroek called Biomechanoid, of which there is some musical similarity.
