Glochids new full length album, 'Ni Fila', is an impressive addition to the canon of acousmatic ecology. Sound collage treated as an ecosystem. Non-hierarchical, interdependent layers from varied sources. Diversity strengthens; confusion instructs.
There is nothing obtuse about the sonic language in which Glochids speaks, yet his unique, studied intellect draws upon the academic framework of his concrete music predecessors: it takes the most inaccessible output of their process-driven experimentation, and translates it into a viral, organic dialectic form, just as that which resonates in our very DNA.
Ni Fila contains electronics & field recordings, acoustic & midi percussion. Gamelan bonang share space with Guatemalan street scenes. Various tracks built from material used extensively in Glochids live performances over the past three years.
