For anyone who finds the brain-destabilising neuron-hammering of Venetian Snares or Jansky Noise a little too much, Lexaunculpt are certainly a viable listening option. Melding the kind of beats that the aforementioned Venetian Snares would probably produce after a weekend spent with a large bag of illegal smoking substances and a few funk records, with soft, almost Boards Of Canada-ish synths, Lexaunculpt produce a gently abrasive, strangely funky melange vaguely reminiscent of Björk's more angular moments or a Valiumed Aphex Twin. Certainly worth investigating.

I cannot believe that this album has not got more recognition and popularity as it is so original, so well produced, so varied and this guy has an amazing songwriting skill and there are so many beautiful melodies.
I dare you to listen to 'Emori Dixon Renamed' or 'Ninety-Seven Cars and Free Love' or 'Le Elancholia' & not buy it! It really grows on you and under your skin (in a nice way).

all the things that make IDM great 25 Jun. 2003
By Daymon Kiliman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Subtle, emotive melodies moved along by complex hits and spits of digi-mechanical noise. I'm also impressed by the artist's delving into string and piano melodies. With so many artists moving deeper and deeper into ear-grating noise, it's nice to find an album that isn't afraid to present beautiful melodies in a fresh, experimental way.
This all might sound reminiscent of Autechre (what isn't?) and maybe Aphex Twin. These are fair comparisons, but if you dig them, I strongly suggest you purchase this CD. It is unique enough to contribute to the genre and keep the listener engaged. It is quite an experience. This album is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite braindance albums.

An engrossing and totally unique album of serious electronic music 4 Mar. 2008
By Steward Willons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not sure why Lexaunculpt never attracted more attention. Other than his short discography (two full length and two 12" releases), it seems like Autechre and Flashbulb fans would be all over this. This release comes from u-ziq's Planet Mu label, but it's much more mellow than what we typically expect from a Planet Mu artist. There is plenty of rapid-fire sampling like Venetian Snares, but the tempos are much slower and the you don't get the feeling that you're listening to the product of a meth junkie.

Lexaunculpt is interesting because while the programming approaches the complexity of the most abstract Autechre track, the music floats along as if it were totally natural. When I listen to Autechre, I *hear* the machine, but when I listen to Lexaunculpt, I hear the composer behind the machine. That's not to say that Autechre is devoid of humainty - not at all. It's a difference of approach.

One interesting aspect is the dynamic range. With an Aphex Twin recording, the listener gets sandbagged with noise in a manner that wears on the senses after extended listening sessions. Lexaunculpt has enough mellow sections to allow you to listen to the entire album without fatigue. It's a difficult feat, but one that gives the album a big boost.

The music is generally pretty abstract. I rolls along without giving away a sense of form. I can tell that there IS form, but it's masked almost to the point that the music seems through-composed. Other tracks have nice melodic sections, which form a nice counterpoint to the clicks and cuts that dominate the majority of the music. These melodic parts really remind me of The Flashbulb in that they seamlessly blend dense rhythmic editing with flowing melody.

This is such a unique CD. IDM fans should check it out, without question. It may be a bit abstract for some tastes, but it's fairly accessible - especially for an IDM album.
Lexaunculpt - The Blurring Of Trees 28 Feb. 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lexaunculpt's THE BLURRING OF TREES forces the classical and the contemporary into an uneasy truce, a musical Cold War. "Has Been Trying Not to Wonder" has a pastoral vibe that survives one tempo change, but disappears into clattery rhythm patterns. "Le Elancholia" is dominated by strings, with electronics breaking the surface every so often. The continual changing of moods (from shrill blipping to lush strings on "Drowning Cricket Quartet" or from harsh digital to soothing ambience on "Oddrey Merged") keeps the listener's attention quite well--but it also makes the tracks with less development, like the abstract "Ninety Seven Cars and Free Love" or "Mister Bloodvessel Opener" seem less interesting. Even though these tracks are constructed with obvious care, the album overall seems to lack a certain structure that would have given it more cohesion, but the slow stomp of "Strangelove Offline" add rhythmic interest. "Emori Dixon Renamed" closes things on quivering strings and dynamic intensity, reinforcing the notion that, while flawed, this album is still worthwhile.
