Amoeba Review

01/09/2014

Philly outsider synth veteran Charles Cohen gets a retrospective look thanks to Rabih Beani, who developed a fascination with CC's mostly improvised world after being tipped off by young Philly duo Metasplice. While Cohen's direct influence on bleeding edge music may be diminished due to obscurity (until now), the sounds he coaxes out of his preferred synth, the Buchla Easel, are as texturally adventurous as 2013 releases by Holden and Tim Hecker. The music is immediately rhythmic while eschewing dedicated drum machines. Camera Dance uses melodic triumphalism over a bed of unruly modular percussion, while Sonomama plumbs the depths like a cannon before settling into a Kraftwerk via Gamelan groove.
