            Carlos Giffoni is a Venezuelan electronic musician residing in the New York City area for the past 10 plus years. It's here where Giffoni established himself not only as a jammer but as a curator of contemporary out music as label head and festival director for No Fun Productions. Giffoni uses modular synthesizers, custom-built instruments, and various modes of analog and digital synthesis to compose electronic music pieces for physical formats. He is also well-versed and respected in the international improvisational circuit.

            Giffoni's recent work focuses on live analog synthesizer pieces in line with early cosmic electronic and techno music, while maintaining the harsher edge of his previous noise works. A perpetual believer in "no rules" jam creation in the face of stringent genrefication, Giffoni's No Fun Acid project puts this belief into practice on Evidence, a two track 12" for Software Recording Company.

            Evidence stylistically reintegrates lessons learned with a newfound and brazen songcraft that few would expect from the tenured noise artist. The synergy of Giffoni's monotone vocals with acid leads and pulsescapes suggests something strangely erotic that was hinted at on the Adult Life and Severance records. The killer surprise on Evidence is Laurel Halo's manually mechanized piano and synth riffage on the title track. A refreshing look at experimental synth craft that is closer in nature to the explorations of EBM and industrial without relying on typical cold / masculine tropes, and couldn't be farther away from the overly placating and demonstrative kosmische tendencies of late. Times change, disintegration is imminent, and here is the Evidence.

            Replica

              “Lopatin has accomplished something many musicians making so-called experimental music fail to do: open our ears to new sonic possibilities and, more importantly, force us to reconsider and rewire some of our most basic assumptions.” (Wire, January 2010/311)

              Oneohtrix Point Never is Daniel Lopatin, a US native whose work has brought him to the forefront of the modern electronic composition scene. Though Lopatin’s rise felt meteoric following his 2009 double-disc anthology 'Rifts' and its 2010 follow-up 'Returnal', (praised by the likes of Wire, Pitchfork, Fader, Guardian UK, The Quietus, and XLR8R) his love of polyphonic synthesizers dates back to childhood jam sessions with his father’s Roland Juno-60, an instrument which, like B.B. King’s Lucille, he has never left behind.

              Audiences in the last year have gravitated towards OPN’s profound arrangements, which manage to touch upon both mainstream and discarded electronic music histories, and merge the structural freedom of noise with the abstract emotionality of work considered by many to be “background music.” His passion to find personal meaning in failed new age utopias and liminal science fiction environments often brings his compositions to the brinks of minimalism, drone, proto-techno, noise and pop, clarifying the past through a blissful repetition of its signifiers. If one can communicate efficiently within the realm of electronic music, OPN reveals itself as a project with a zeal for expression, an emotive blinking light on the cold horizon.

              'Replica', his latest effort, is an electronic song cycle based around audio procured from television advertisement compilations. These sample-based meditations are as lyrical as they are ecological, featuring re-purposed “ghost vocals” which serve as narration for Lopatin’s signature amorphous, ambient passages. Lopatin’s commitment to his Juno-60 is still on display, but the placid, synthetic surroundings of 'Returnal' are accelerated via darker, propulsive terrains using samplers, analog filtering, tape manipulation, acoustic piano, plate reverb and sub-frequencies. In his own words, “Replica has as much to do with environmental, broadcasted, and club sounds that I was exposed to while on the road over the past couple years as it does with more direct musical influences.” The result is a heightened sense of music as part and parcel of an overall sonic landscape.

              Another note of interest is the record cover itself; a 1936 illustration by Virgil Finlay depicting a vampire looking in the mirror and only seeing a skull. The backside of the record features manipulated ASCII art of a skull credited anonymously on the web. This duality lends itself to the record’s conceptual themes: replication, violence, androgyny and preservation.

              'Replica' was mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Dan Deacon) and mixed by childhood friend Al Carlson at Mexican Summer’s studio, marking this as Lopatin’s first proper studio project.

              says: Daniel Lopatin AKA OPN return with 'Replica', a tape manipulated song cycle based around found sounds from TV advert compilations. Quite how he makes it all sound so mournfully beautiful is anybody's guess. Stunning!!
