Format: Audio CD
Oval were more or less responsible for all this glitch nonsense, and with Dok and Szenariodisk Marcus Popp kept the skipping alive by advancing it just enough for it to still be refreshingly intelligent and ahead of the rest. Szenariodisk excelled due to the sensation of tunes-between-the-lines... they weren't really there but somehow they were conjured in your mind. On Ovalprocess he takes another little step - just enough for you NOT to think 'yup - i recognise those skips from before'. There's a sense of melody within the restrained use of tone in most of the tracks - from track three the album almost has a definite sense of tune. Still nothing unexpected for the Oval fan, it's still not easy to listen to for the uninitiated - the lyricism and encompassing of recognisable semi-sequences of notes not being a concession for a wider listening audience - but a development for Mr Popp.
The album continues along with its dichotomy of industrially slurred screeching and harrowing snatches of beautiful melancholy at a mechanised world falling into ruin until the end, but on the final couple of tracks the skipping is wielded masterfully rather than it being allowed to just bellow mercilessly across everything.
So still not easily listening and not something to play your grandmother who's just had that triple bypass - but a display of control over the vaguaries of digital corruption.
