Black Thread – CorpusPosted: January 26, 2014
If William Basinski’s Disintegration Loops were a polished, hi-fi representation of a memory fading and crumbling, then the Corpus cassette by Black Thread, released on San Francisco tape destroyer microlabel Turmeric Magnitudes is the ultra lo-fi attempt to represent loops falling apart into hissing oblivion. Piano melodies are getting torn to single notes, echoing ambience is abruptly cut with loud clicks, there is a truly raw bedroom feel to this whole cloud of sound… This is not low fidelity. This is even not no fidelity. This is minus fidelity.
