Electronic Rhythms

 

The Electronic Rhythms project was work in progress for the duration of 2014.

Mark O’Leary worked, reworked, developed and reconfigured the material from January until September.

It's genre has a degree of elan and prestidigitation that has its genesis in the release “Elektronische Musik”, but the music has migrated to another trajectory that opens up new frontiers. Not as insouciant as one might conceive, Mark develops minimal materials adroitly albeit with a degree of cautious contemplation, reductionism, careful analysis and additive progression. 

As Clausewitz alludes ''The higher the object is situated, the greater must be the number of means employed to reach it''.  Therefore there are more tracks on this recording to portray several new capacities and nuances not heretofore presented.

Cura te ipsum, first you get it right yourself, then you can help others, this distillation process takes time, as John Heywood simply puts; ''Rome was not built in a day'' for it is in the building where the consolidation process takes place and Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc, After This, Because of This.

Albeit Mark is not a historian, a student of history rather and during 2014 there was a lot of history created by some extraordinary, inspirational people and these myriad of events in this epoch aggregated to shape the sonic texture and content of the recording, its idiomatic temperament is symptomatic of the times prevailing, culminating with the unfortunate renewed enmity between East and West and a whole host of disparate, ancillary consequences.

The world is a complex place, sometimes the antagonists produce talented people whose mores are not congruent with ones own and the protagonist not so talented, nor endearing albeit not always. 

The antagonist, essentially may be very wrong in the views and ethos they espouse but as individuals they can be quite affable, the protagonist can actually upon occasion be the antithesis. 

This ingredient has manifested itself within the helices of this music.

The perspicacious interjections of Daniele Santini's pastoral electronics, character and mixing gives this recording a touch of finesse juxtaposed with rigour. 

The sequel which will be forthcoming in the not too distant future promises to be an interesting appendage to this apogee of Contemporary Electronic Music.
