concept and music by martin delisle
'creating music is an extremely sensitive game that is controlled both by intelligence and knowledge.' (hologram_)
two years after his first opus 'geometrical keys', martin delisle a.k.a. hologram_ continues his musical odyssey by opening a new chapter with the second album 'amen: requiem for heart fragment' on which he sonically evolves while staying true to his geometric abstraction.
the eleven tracks offer a stunning combination of sounds and styles that mixes industrial elements with cinematic orchestration, idm and glitch. heavy repetitive beats, sparse, syncopated percussion patterns and massive bass lines containing prominent low frequencies carry an intoxicating fusion of darkened futuristic epic soundscapes and melodies. within single tracks the listener is carried inside a well-constructed environment of high-kept tension between quieter parts and powerful rhythmic pulsations.
hologram_ deconstructs and extends something personal by borrowing and using external forces' phantasmagoria. this album is a logical continuation of the sonic journey martin delisle offers to the listener by pushing the walls of genres, so yet unknown musical worlds can be discovered - come along, and be captivated.
