Review by philippe
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Since the beginning of the 90's, the australian based project Omit published an important catalogue of weird, corrosive, ephemeral hypno-droning pieces. Retraction is almost the first of a long serie of achieved, original musical sound sculptures whose aesthetism is directly recognisable. Retraction is an honest experimental, cryptical album but it's by fare less moving than the terrific Rejector or Tracer (published a few years later). The instrumentation features a lot of manipulated concrete sounds, shadowy continuous sound forms, metallic injections / perforations. Pre Gain starts this lugubruous experimental album with obssessional, intoxicated industrial pulses, alarms and electronic oscillations. Neo-traction delivers a Bianchi-like infectious, bionic industrial piece with lot of strange signals. Sub-retraction is closer to what Omit will deliver a few years after: it presents an austere, dark-isolated drone covered by various electronic clicks, percussions with the add of altered voices and bizarre concrete noises. Down View carries on the same path but includes a much more moody-dreamy-like vibe thanks to nocturnal buzzing organ chords. Low Depth is a chaotic-free rocking experimentation (closed to early Kluster or zweisten). Not a classic but it introduces a few interesting musical elements that will be sublimated in albums as Rejector or Tracer.
