Sound X Sound
Music For Chromatic Tuners
(Hiatus)

A 7″ by Danish composer Niels Lyhne Lokkegaard, the songs here feature 30 KORG CA-1 Chromatic Tuners. If you’re like me, you have no idea what that means, but are curious as to what kind of sounds emanate here. Much like Lokkegaard’s previous release, the idea is to magnify the sound of this particular instrument with many of them engaged in a tight setting. Dense, rich and organic, you can hear the sounds of the tuners being manipulated on the b-side, which has 6 players each amplifying their Tuners into waves of full, experimental patterns. The a-side is all Lokkegard as he navigates his tuners into a quivering mood that transcends music and brings the listener to a place that conventional music often can’t. A truly niche release, this EP will have massive appeal to a small group, but small appeal to the masses. (Tom Haugen)
