Set Your Center Between Your Parts In Order To
Originally released in 2006, Set Your Center Between Your Parts In Order To is the follow-up release to the stellar debut, Display, by Danish artist Pixel aka Jon Egeskov. As a professionally-trained jazz musician with academic credentials, Egeskov furthers his journey into the realm of minimalistic electronic music. With distinct parts, he continues merging digital (sound) artifacts with subsonic bass lines in a rather allusive manner. Inspired by African conflict and cross-rhythms, Pixel examines the potential of simultaneous yet independent pulsating meters. He fuses polyrhythmic and polymetrics with the signature Raster-Noton sound vocabulary and thus connects his work to the here and now. The tracks are heavily accentuated in regards to dynamics. They were recorded during several studio sessions without any overdubs (and without later editing). Pixel may have drawn inspiration to proceed this way after witnessing live performances by Pan Sonic and Autechre. The songs were created intuitively and spontaneously during the process of performing and improvising. You can indeed hear that everything is floating and that there are no statics or incidental situations. Set Your Center Between Your Parts In Order To gets its sparks from the ups and downs of its density... from the complex blending of basic particles, to the shift in their significance. If you allow yourself to get into this dark and evolving fabric, an auditory sensation of rhythmic timing will emerge. Mastered by Stefan Betke of Pole.
