Chier - Neon Heat [Neon Wall Series /Lurker Bias - 2016]

Here’s the second in the new batch of the ‘Neon-Wall’ releases from Lurker Bias. This time around we have two wall’s from the always worthy French wall-noise project Chier. And the C32 offers up two side long slices creatively textured wall-craft  from the project.

Both tracks here are untitled, & the first track opens with this jagged & bumpy tonal map of the following textures: A taut & tight bass judder, A stretched rip 'n' dragging texture, A tumbling rumble, and a few snippets of mid-to-high pitched tape stretch like texturing. As the track progresses the ‘wall’ continues in it’s jagged & unpredictable manner, with new textural patter-nation been added into the flow of the track. This first sides track really is a masterful & clever bit of jagged wall-craft/ taut static based noise craft from Chier- this projects output just seems to be getting better & better.

Over on side B we have the second ‘wall’, and once again this is yet another great example of creative wall-craft from Chier. It opens with caught-yet-thin metallic bashing pattern, which sounds almost a bit like very unwell & wiry IDM. Fairly soon we get added to the ‘wall’ a selection of the following textures: a rising ‘n’ awkwardly tumbling bass tone, and a selection of  thinner ratting ‘n’ buffing tones.  Once again Chier creates a track here that is wonderfully tooled & controlled in it’s layer manipulation, with a great feeling of unpredictability blended with intense yet  highly detailed focus of pattern complexities.

Chier maybe one of the most prolific of the recent new wave of wall-noise acts; putting out around 60 releases in the last year. But really everything I’ve heard from the project is both well conceived, texturally creative, and highly worthy. Neon Heat is another great addition to his discography & one of the highlights of the ‘Neon- wall’ series thus far.
