Format: Audio CD
An extraordinary piece of sonic craftmanshift. 4 albums, each with its own identity, Kesto is the perfect instrument to enter a pre-contemplative state. I had been impressed with Aaltopiiri: a true paradigm shift in the world of noise-based electronic music. Kesto elevates electronic noise to art.
The first album strikes you with unpolluted violence, mixed with unadulterated fastidiousness. Its hypnotic rhythmic base, its growing decibels, its textural denouements stimulate the adrenalin while keeping you stuck, literally glued to your seat. The result: an odd, unique cognitive and physical short circuit. Requires a very powerful and hi fi stereo. The baselines can be heard in odd bodily cavities.
The second album slows things down. You are now able to focus more clearly on the slowly throbbing baselines, and the synoptic snapping. Good music to listen at a pool, before dipping in. A walkman will do.
The third album is a series of subtly interposing and intersticed noises. Here the silences become more important focusing points. Best listened to at night. Alone.
The last album is an extraordinary, one-hour long monotonic but subtly textured play of frequencies. I use it in my yoga classes to facilitate a pre-meditative state. Requires a clear mind.
