Of mathematical precision to ellicit drool
from schools of fractal worship and of tribal intensity that would appease
the most removed from society, noise artist James Vietzke (Holocaust Theory)
thrusts a second CD release into your neural patheways through his solo
project, ZymOsiZ. Noiy; an sound experience that drags you down and
back again and leaves no altered state unfamiliar.
This is no smashing of dilluted noise
generated by television and radio static, burned onto CD and inappropriately
revered as talent. The self negating "Signal In", with enough layered
complexities to rightfully demand several passes, will satiate even the
most deprived of electronic noise fans. The cold minimalistic drone
of "Antict" and "Quest" challenges one's attention to the foremost levels
of reality lest it slip through your grasp. And asserting control
before manipulating the listener to new audiosomatic levels successively,
the title track "Noiy" follows a gradual line of heightened sophistication.
An elaborate composition of electronic variations and dark soundscapes,"Noiy"
effortlessly paves the way for the disreveried experience of "Dante" and
the choice distortions of "Stompers". The cherry on this analogue
sundae is "Tears and Laughter". A track that indifferently drags
you through a schitzophrenic mindscape before abruptly dumping you back
to where you began. You do not simply listen to Noiy, you are infected
with it. This is the precision of a true noise artist.
James Vietzke single handedly evokes the
ultimate transmission of man through machine and crams out enough assiduous
damage to leave you in appentent anticipation for the next step on his
journey. This is the Noiy experience.
