Phantom Rib - Untitled(Infinity series Part 6) [Sweet solitude - 2011]

Phantom Ribís  "Untitled" is the sixth volume of the Infinity series- an open ended and identical artwork based collection of releases put out by Uk based Sweet Solitude label. Each volume sees a different world wide HNW acts attempting ambient and experimental forms of walled noise- Phantom Rib is the new project from Dubuque Iowa based Alex Nowacki (Boar &  Centuries Behind A Gate), and what we have on offer here is best described as taunt almost rhythmic based static texturing.

The single untitled track comes in at just under the 42 minute mark, and itís built around a very tense & taut mixture of static textured patterns which Nowacki forces into a regimented & un-breaking map of sound. When I first heard the track it rather brought to mind a more detailed, dense & unrelenting take on the type of static based composition raster noton (German Minimal Electronica label) releases.  But the track just skims & mainly misers defined rhythmic connects, and itís also alot more constructing & airless than raster noton's work.  The tracks main structure is made up of a constantly juddering & mid-tone static tones which are surrounded by smaller jittering and jumping static tonalities. Though out the tracks full lenght Nowacki keeps all the textures locked together in a very moorish & firm state, and if you let your self you really do drift off into the taunt glitching patterns he creates here.

So something a little different & less HNW ambient based from the Infinity series. Phantom Ribís  - 'Untitled' is another great addition to this great series, and I very much look forward to hearing what Nowacki does next with this new project, as itís quite different to his other two projects Boar &  Centuries Behind A Gate.
