BLD

Acid Pauli, 2017

Electronic music's very nature sounds constructed. It's an assemblage. Real effort must be exerted to make it feel spontaneous. What if one embraces the style's inherent qualities and spends that effort instead on making it's construction more exquisite? On BLD, every sound seems to have a cushion of physical space around it, demarcating it from every other simultaneous event in the mix. You are able to examine every key or snap of percussion in isolation or in context, at will. Instead of attempting to create an illusion of the natural, Acid Pauli has opted instead for hyperreal. He constructs a fully three dimensionsal sonic space, sans a blurry depth of field to imitate the real world.
