4.0 out of 5 stars What the...?, 15 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Flare (Audio CD)
So there was me, flicking through the odd section when I stumbled across Flare by Aube. Every so often I like a random buy so I thought why not, it's got a pretty cover & a Japanese bloke did it. So when I get it home, slip it into the CD player & instantly I'm transported into a strange world of buzzing & static. It ebbed, it flowed, it was about 20 minutes down the line before I realised I was enjoying it. Aube's work is vaguely reminiscent of what you'd get if you crossed E.A.R. & Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians, which, if you ask me, is a good thing. Using filiment lamps & fluoresent tubes as source material, this CD challenges our preconceptions of how music should sound.
Anyone who doesn't get minimalism or experimental music will probably hate it. You'd win no prizes for playing it at a party (I know, I've tried) but if you want to be transported to that rare musical 'otherplace', it does the trick.
Track two sounds like someone's screaming though...
