A fine release from a guy who had the weight of the 'IDM' world on his shoulders after his extraordinary Clarence Park debut on Warp. Being hailed as the new Aphex is a double edged sword, and I think Chris certainly sharpened the correct edge if 'Ceramics...' is anything to go by. Incredibly beautiful and textured melodies work in perfect harmony with digital chaos and tomfoolery as Clark delivers an EP that sweeps across the board of IDM without losing focus and wandering into noodley and needlessly noisey territories. I suppose Aphex is the easiest comparison, but Clark has enough edge and creativity to deserve solo recognition without the 'new Aphex' tag. For me it is 'The Gavel' that stands out on this EP. Haunting soundscapes merge and phase until a ferocious beat hammers relentlessly (The Gavel in question?) whilst sub bass groans battle with manic digital stoccato-like glitches. Gorgeously disturbing.

I bought this EP,because I'm a big Warp fan,and because I really liked the first LP of Chris Clark:Clarence Park...
This EP is REALLY worth its 4 of 5 pounds...
It has a GREAT cover from the Designer Republic,and 6 great tracks all different from one another...it's only 16min but it's 16 good min !
All the tracks are good,but my favourite is the 4th,which is a like squarepusher like...but still with Clark's style...
It's really worth it,trust me,even if I'm just a french frogg :)
(Chris Clark new LP is out in september,we should all be looking forward to listen to it,because it's certainly gonna be HUGE)
Cheers !

quality work 23 Sept. 2003
By Mr. T. P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Gavel: Starts out with some wierd idm-percussion noises and beepings. Then it fades too a tape loop sort of rythm and bell tones and ambience underneath...a burst of noise, it all drops away, and in enters a totally awesome ambient bit. Alien and dark and evil. Finally, the idm percussion returns, and the two fight amongst each other. Reminds me of an attack on a distant outpost in space. Very fetching! Probably my favorite track on the ep, it has shovels and shovels worth of "mood" and "epicness."

Slow Spines: Atmospheric melody plays to a somewhat hip hop feeling, but distinctly Chris Clark glitchy idm sounding, beat. Then an odd (whistling? synth?) sound joins, and some other cool stuff happens. Cool sinister sounding track. I like this shorter version better than the one on "Empty the Bones of You."

Frost Investigation: Short track. Genius melody composed of static noise and a beautiful belltone/piano sound. Wonderful ambience and reverb builds in the background.

A. Council - Your standard acid idm. I found it somewhat uninspiring, but it'll appeal to fans of Richard D James's "Druqks"...pretty similar to some of that stuff, though maybe a bit less hard-edged.

Shonny - One of my favorites. Interesting melody, catchy and somewhat glitchy beat, occasional breaks and cool stuff happening.

Rob Lee - A sort of brain dance feel. A skronky little acid base dances to the accompaniment of some old school drum machine sounds, and then that drops, and then a very nice pad synth plays in it's place. It progresses nicely and does little things.

I am very excited with Chris Clark's work. He is making melodic and engaging idm in a time when I was beginning to lose faith in the genre. This is a somewhat short ep, but the music is quality stuff!
Chris Clark - Ceramics Is The Bomb 22 Feb. 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Full of hiss and strange spine-tingling noises? Why, it's must be Chris Clark and his Ceramics is the Bomb EP. (Who'd you think I was going to say? Aphex Twin? Autechre?) "The Gavel" starts in with some booming beats, but "Slow Spines" and "Frost Investigation" seem to skitter by without notice. "Shonny" ends with some of the melodic IDM that we know and love, and that melodic sense carries into "Rob Lee." A good, though not particularly memorable, EP.
Chris Clark is the bomb 15 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is just a [great] ep. Kind of short at less than 20 min. Better overall than his full length, Clarence Park, which I also totally love. Expect a unique twist on the Aphex/Warp/Skam sound we have all come to know and love. The musical forms lend themselves to more head knodding than quiet contemplation, but it's still very complex stuff that gets better with repeated listens.

Ceramics is an amazing piece of work. The album as a whole is destructive yet beautiful, and must be listened to at maximum volume to fully appreciate. This is attention to detail, served in a form that breaks and leaps in near chaos. The result is a very freeing experience.
