The very wonderful Itsu Jitsu label based in Scotland has released a new album from Noise Research.

A Proof of Fermat – Noise Research (ijnr01)

Download ‘A Proof of Fermat’ FREE here

Noise Research has crafted a hugely evocative snapshot of life in The City. Electrics hiss and spit, machinery malfunctions and drones and all around us people collide head on with modern day living.

It begins relatively quietly and peacefully with processed shifting sounds creating a sense of motion and exploration. These bring to mind light winds blowing through a city, alighting upon it’s inhabitants, giving us a brief insight into their existence, a sense of the minutiae of their daily lives. Three minutes into ‘Concrete Island’ however a darker side begins to show as the wind works it’s way into cracks and crevices, wears away at buildings, vehicles, people, a creeping sense of dread begins to spread through this peaceful scene and slowly, insidiously it spreads on through ‘Crash’ and into ‘High Rise’ taking us with it (Jason Kavanagh, Itsu Jitsu).
