Homage To The Square Wave

by eleh



Early Eleh release created using only square waves and released on the Taiga label in a limited edition. Subsequently released on CD via Important.

From Taiga:

Homage is dedicated to the highly influential artist Josef Albers. Eleh return with their battery of vintage modular analog gear to produce a recording of pure tone, pure sound, pure volume and pure analog.

Side A features “Black,” a slowly enveloping mass of intensely throbbing low end, activating the flight response. Times passes rapidly in a hallucinatory forest filled with suffocating bulbs of bass. “Blue & White” on the B-side provides the decompression of rocking on a calm ocean. Soft peaks of warm tone rise and fall over the surface of concentrated
saline. Volume reveals detail.
