Aube - Imagery Resonance [Aquarellist - 2007]

This is Aube first new, original and non reconstructing of others work or collaboration in some years- made using synthesizers instead of his usual manipulated sound source. Offering  an hour of new sound works in all.

The idea of him using synthesizers may suggest an departure from the ambient & noise based work he’s know  and moving towards more  traditional electronic scapes. But for the most part this is Aube of old just with a new if not so surprising or inventive sound source, though there are moments when it nudges towards hypnotic electronica type vibe. On offer here are four tracks that last around 15 minutes apiece- each been a developing, mophing  and improvised mix of Ambient, drone, rhythmic elements and slight noise tendencies .

The tracks for the most part seem to move & morph more then quite a lot of Aube past work; going from feedback atmospheric feedback whispers, to throbbing ominous electronic structures, to trippy sounding electronica, to dense and searing fogs of sound. Through the tracks with more movement offer up interesting, inventive elements for my part the favourite moments here are when he locks down into long, hypnotic and droning textures. Just like the second track here Groundloop which is built around ghostly, fog like and eerier electronic repetitions which he grows and adds to giving an spellbinding & haunting atmosphere which you cant take your ears off. This is one of the highlights here and an jewel in his discography.

There a  few of the moments scattered about with- in the tracks that don’t work atall. He just seems to be using lazy and uninteresting textures, take for example most of the first track Undertone where he just loops out an undercharged feedback throb for the first five minutes, sure the track gets more involving latter on but it spends too long doing nothing.

A welcome returning of new work from Aube- that shows some new sonic developments and ideas, and also proves he’s still able to create awe inspiring alien and highly atmospheric soundworlds. To get more info & buy direct please drop in here
