Noise Becomes Her

noise becomes here

Randomness, chord zither, beads



Experimental musician Martin Rach uses the word imagination (or a variation of it) in several of his releases. It’s Rach’s unapologetic use of the imaginary that gives him a freedom to experiment within the realm of electronic music. The Lithuanian’s latest release, Concerto for Imaginary Ensemble And Electronics on Audiotalaia, is composed of three tracks that display an odd inspiration in the combination of orchestral instruments and the electronic medium. In the album’s second track, “Movement for Strings and Electronics”, Rach gives us glimpses of the standard orchestral fare but always with idiosyncratic twist of noise and distortion. Rach’s journey into the abstraction of orchestra and electronics is a fantastic labyrinth of sound and illusion.
