Sendai; Ground And FigureEditions Mego
EMEGO 232 LP
Double Long Playing Record
Editions Mego present the third release by Sendai, Ground and Figure. Comprised of Peter Van Hoesen and Yves de Mey, Ground and Figure presents the duo residing in a more economic framework which allows the sound and rhythm they produce more room to shift, swirl and swim the circumference of the audio spectrum.
Moving away from the twitchiness and anxiety of the earlier output, Ground and Figure is a vast spacious journey from a duo in full control of their chosen path. Throughout Ground and Figure, abstraction and rhythm weave among each other in such a sly manner that the resulting tension in the conflicting elements presents the listener with a hypothetical high-tech elastic percussive grid.
A thudding, pulsating, shape-shifting ambient beast is summoned by these two creators working as one. This is machine music. This is hypnotic disorientation. This is an immense ambitious and refined world of sound and rhythm. This is the work of two producers who continuously try to top up their skills.
