Jessica Ekomane: Multivocal LP

I haven’t yet witnessed one of Jessica Ekomane’s quadraphonic performances, but turning this LP way up gives me a sense of how transportive they must be. It seems simple on the surface — steady pulse in each speaker being generated with a millisecond’s difference in tempo, gradually interlocking and falling out of sync and forming strange, complex bent polyrhythms — but it just scrambles my brain to hear it all play out. So much seems to going on, all of these rays of sound are darting out and rapidly circling and returning at the same time, but when they’re close to being in sync it all just feels like it’s actually really simple and direct. I feel like I could just bounce around this head-vortex forever.
