A sound album from Mats Erlandsson lands on Berlin-based label Portals Editions. With an emphasis on tuning and intonation as forms of harmony and sound more generally, Erlandsson presents a sonic world of opposites in which listeners can choose to escape the dysfunctional realities they’ve constructed. Intro track ‘Synthetic Crystal’ drags its lucid weight around, an ambient/drone work heavy on synthesized sound. Titles like ‘Heads Sealed With Silver’ and ‘Description Was the Star’ evoke Erlandsson’s illusory and picturesque world, communicated via analog machines and acoustic string instrumentation.
