Album Review: Kodomo – “Patterns & Light”

Kodomo
Patterns & Light
(Self-Released)

Chris Child, AKA Kodomo, turns ambient electronica into a highly refined science here, moving quickly from faint soundscapes into vibrant beats. Mostly instrumental, Kodomo occasionally finds himself in more classifiable ares like post-rock, dub or funk, though these moments are fleeting at best, and he relies primarily on a progressive and atypical equation of electronica that uses pianos and acoustic guitars amid an arsenal of synthetic noises. Amazingly, part of the impetus for this album was classical records that Child picked up at flea markets, many of which are sampled throughout. (Tom Haugen)
