Philipp Kessler

Pulsar (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This cut is nearly ten minutes in length. Much like the album from this artist I also reviewed in this issue, this is purely electronic music. It's also so more like a "sound painting" than it is like a song. It's quite intriguing either way.

Track by Track Review

Fast paced keyboard textures open this. Other elements appear after a time to create the bottom end of the mix. The cut continues to evolve from there. Around the four and a half minute mark some sounds a bit like white noise are added to the mix. That sound drops away after a time. This cut gets more musical, but it's somewhat redundant. Still, as more of a "sound painting," that doesn't really matter.
