Daniel Blinkhorn - Terra Subkonica (CD Gruenrekorder)
A large collection of miniatures form what appears to be the debut release by this artist given to moulding fragmented field recordings together with micro-electronics, the occasional melodic thrum, shapeshifted clarinet and gnarled tonal sweeps. Together, they form a radiophonic exploration, although each piece can be taken as self-contained as well as part of the entire narrative. Although far from unique, Terra Subfonica remains interesting enough to accompany a quiet and solitary domestic chore, such as ironing. Would I return to this after having just caught up with a huge pile of shirts, though? I guess you read my mind. RJ.
