D'incise - Sécheresse Pantée en Plein Ciel [Gruenrekorder - 2009]D'incise is an electronica (or I suppose) artist from Geneva. This album is composed of rhythms made from field recordings of, from what I can tell, doors opening and closing and other things.
The problem with this record lies in the execution, however. The artist tends to use the same watered-down synth-piano tone on every track here, so almost every track sounds the same. It does seem that D'incise has classical training, but if this is his current thesis he could've used more of a variety of sounds out of his instrument (at least.) Otherwise all those skittery rhythms sound a bit cheesy and silly. I'm not a big fan of trip-hop anyways (which I think this release is supposed to be.) However at least the third track has some ghostly sounds in the background.
So D'incise puts out a rather dilettante trance release. I can't imagine this appealing to anybody except stuffy musical professors. It's that academic sounding.Lawrence J. Patti
