Pulse Emitter/Brett Naucke: Mugen Volume 9 tape

The ninth volume of Hausu Mountain’s split series (consisting of solo live performances with no overdubs) starts with a trio of typically crystalline pieces from Pulse Emitter. They’re clear and reflective, but also three dimensional and sometimes rapidly twisting and swerving. They’re like crystal charms that dance on their own, even without wind. The Brett Naucke side is anything but new age, although it also seems multi-dimensional and holophonic. It’s a lot darker and more haunted, with sinister whispers and dripping beats which skitter and hobble. Right after it’s gotten to the point where you’re sure you’ve been sleepwalking into a black hole, it gets to a slow pounding beat which disintegrates and leaks out into some sort of free-floating metallic ooze, which seems to magnetically form into a loose, prickly rhythm. Does that explain it? Probably not, because it can’t be explained. You’ll only find out if you listen.
