Oto HiaxEditions Mego
EMEGO 234 LP
Long Playing Record
Editions Mego present the first full length release from Oto Hiax. Comprised of Mark Clifford (Seefeel) and Scott Gordon (Loops Haunt), Oto Hiax follows 2015's acclaimed EP, One.
Embracing a series of sonic opposites, Oto Hiax employs electronic and concrete sound to construct a labyrinth of moods, sliding from basic repetition to complex audio suites. The mood is such that the listener is advised to embrace the unexpected as unusual elements gently drift across the audio plane.
Exquisitely executed, this is no foray into generic sound design but a rich and complex ruse whereby seemingly jarring sonic elements play out a subtle and harmonious bridge between a variety of musical styles and genres. "Insh" carries the kind of hallowed kraut comfort that only seasoned professionals can harness, whereas "Eses Mitre" disorientates in the most enticing fashion. Oto Hiax have produced an album of exquisite detail and beauty. Now is their time.
