Title: Rapt
Format: CD
Label: Disposable Thumb
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"On his latest release, with beautiful hand-printed foldover jackets of his own design, Simon continues to explore his obsessions and fascinations with reverence, wry wit and a skillful ear. Aesthetically similar to 2002s dyrø (PseudoArcana), the CD is an exercise in "wonderment and rapture" via the friendly conduits of electronic drone, cut and paste minimalism and mischievous white noise. Oftentimes a confluence of contrasting disciplines and perspectives, the document is a rich work of intricate spells merging tension and release. Says Simon of Meiji13: "Its a very uncharacteristic foray into program music: the fuzz over the top is like a patina of age, like hearing Caruso singing I Pagliacci." - Disposable Thumb.
