Isnaj Dui
Collision/Detection v8 Front & Follow

Article written by Michael H - Feb 27, 2013

Here we have another essential transmission from the sound laboratories of Front & Follow records; this time, from the mind of Katie English (aka Isnaj Dui) and her acoustic/electronic manipulations.

Using processed flute and other instruments to augment the shared pot of samples that comprise all ‘Collision/Detection' releases, she weaves a rich tapestry of dark and captivating ambient noise music. ‘North’ recalls KTL’s ‘V’ with its trembling string tension and sharp granulated humming and sighing, and what may be a violin scrapes like a rusty gate moving in a breeze. ‘South’ seems to revolve around human breaths buried in the scuzz of an industrial rumble. ‘East’ is less troubling, full of Vangelis cloud puffs of gauzy synth and bird-like chirrups. ‘West’ acts as a companion to BLK TAG’s contribution to the series; English takes the baton and leads the tolling procession of animal-headed weirdoes deeper into the blighted woods, a fire crackle of contorted software surrounding them like falling cinders.

This EP explores the interaction between the rumble of industrial noise, the sample manipulation of laptop electronica and the sustained bowed metal whispers of avant chamber works. It occasionally sounds like Hacker Farm reworking Ligeti for a remake of 2001; this, by the way, is a very good thing. V8 is another excellent release from this sadly soon to finish series.
