Stunning release from Cristian Vogel and SØS Gunver Ryberg as SGR^CAV for The Tapeworm. The label informs us that "Their compositions encourage the listener to observe and explore the resonances of a powerful musical awareness" and 'Moved By Magnets' exhibits a keen sense of spatial perception, tone and presence which entirely justifies that claim. Over four pieces they explore diffuse, free-formed spaces charged with a slow-moving, chaotic sort of energy ranging from the shuddering metallic resonance and bleak, streaking industrial tones of 'Qzhyd' to the modulating mass of globular bass shapes, location recordings and industrial ambient drones unfolding in 'TrÆet', thru the cacophonous emissions and darkside synth roil of 'Ice Trolley 45' on the A-side. B-side they expand on those themes with a 15 minute piece entitled 'Unveil' which shape-shifts from corrugated, rhythmic pulses into squally, discordant attack before opening out into widescreen sci-fi ambient drones. It's the sort of release you should buy a tape player just to hear. RIYL Helm, BJ Nilsen, Lustmord.
