Å - Toute Une Histoire [Victimology Records - 2011]

“Toute Une Histoire”( A whole History) finds this French HNW project offering up a seared, altering and mixed pitch wall of extreme noise. Featured here is a single hour long track that nicely slices ‘n burns through various noise textures and crusty 'n'  high pitched tones, yet it always remains full and extremely intense in it’s attack.

The ‘wall’ smashers straight in with mixture of struggling static & higher pitched sonic end trails- but it does'nt stay in that sonic place for  long. As the track moves on we move from: roaring ‘n’ cluttering static battering, to billowing and expanding noise dwells, though into jittering and grating semi-harmonic mid-pitch tone bombardments, onto skipping and caught grainy static hiccups, and all manner of seared and  noised-up texture that could once have been crowd chattering, radio music drift or all manner of sonic flotsam and jetsam. The track remains a  very full and flowing ‘wall’ of sound through-out, with Å  cleverly and aptly adding in new detail, texture and sonic shift as the track moves along- though the noise altering is never  too oblivious or jarring; meaning this stays with-in the genres boundaries, but attempts something a bit different with the form.


I’ve been a big fan of all of Å’s releases thus far, but I must say “Toute Une Histoire” is one of the best things the project has put out. Simply put this is a great,  unstoppable, seared yet subtle shifting 'wall' of noise which has a great urgency, depth and brutal clarity to it. Umissble stuff really
