A.R.GH - Abuse [Prime Unit Records - 2010]

'Abuse’ is an early release by Chilean noise artist A.R.GH. on Chilean label Prime Unit records.

I’ve reviewed a more recent work from this artist before, and to be quite honest this does not compare as it is quite run of the mill experimentation. The style is very basic and with no clear direction as to where the track intends to go. There is plenty of chaos and plenty of noise, but it fails to impress with its fundamental approach of simply attacking the source with pedals or in some parts maybe a synthesizer. The high levels of feedback also make it a little tough to listen to, but some might say that’s what makes a noise record what it is. Both sides employ the same method and come off too similar or as a extension of the previously heard track which in some cases is tolerable, but in such case makes the release a little less interesting.

‘Abuse’ is not bad or awful even, but it is very elementary and lacks stand out features. In contrast this artist has since shown some promise with his HNW works which have stepped up in quality. It’s interesting to see how an artist develops his style, and this document definitely can be measured up against his recent works as the beginnings of a developing artist.
