FRIEDL, HERIBERT - BRADYCARD (CD)


"Friedl uses a digitally processed cymbalon, soundscapes, field recordings and 'acoustic phrases', all of which move in a very slow way. 'Bradycard' is a medical term meaning 'to have a slow heart-rhythm', mostly under 60 beats per minute. In the two lengthy pieces things move indeed slowly. Starting with the processed sound of thunder, sounds of the cymbalon rise up slowly from the deep end, do their thing and as slowly die out in the end. Over the course of a piece small, delicate digital treatments move in and out in a slightly similar way. It's music that doesn't move much: it stays in the reams of ambient music, but Friedl adds an experimental touch to the material, using sometimes feedback like textures and that will surely not lead to deep atmospherical music, but it breaks away from the ambient glitch and moves microsound into a slightly more noise oriented music, and that's a very good thing. More experimental than one would have assumed and that's the great power of this." (Vital Weekly)
