    A combination of intense hyper-visceral mechanical rhythms, slowly-evolving repetitive textural patterns and emotive ambient/drone scapes. Pitchfork's retort that "Rhythm is only occasionally a factor" notwithstanding, this album is driven by rhythm, granted this is not your traditional techno rhythms which Brinkmann is better known for, more rhythmical pulses and chugs, but nonetheless rhythm is one of the most prominent factors here. Although owing much to the work of Zbigniew Karkowski, particularly in terms of sheer visceral intensity, it must be noted that this album has great affinity, perhaps unknowingly so, with the industrial/noise tradition. Particularly certain sectors of the rhythmic noise scene affiliated with the Ant-Zen label. Indeed, the more noisier grinding rhythmical pieces own a great deal to early Esplendor Geometrico, while tracks like "Perinon" and "Graphit" could easily, too easily, pass as Sonar tracks. While "Kadmiumgelb" and "Indigoblau" share much in common with Ambre's Le Mensonge album. So, if you like any of the above this album is for you. I for one do, and was in awe of Brinkmann's sheer visceral yet austere re-construction of this sound. One of the best albums of 2015.
