Benjamin Finger: Scale Of Blindness

Somewhere between fluid waves and electrical currents, Benjamin Finger’s fuzzy, formless sound constructions lapse into rhythms of their own devising before spilling out into pools of static. It’s often chaotic and dense, but even when a track seems sparse, there’s still several layers operating at their own paces, but still connecting to form a whole. Extended closing piece “Vanishing Faces” is one of the more evenly layered, paced out tracks here, and it gets broader (but not necessarily heavier) near the end, with some particularly striking strings making an impact. Not crazy about the track with the long monologue, but the rest of the album is alluring.
