“Picture puzzle pattern door”
Tom Stokes returns with another Sekotis album on No-Source. “Picture puzzle pattern door” further melds the worlds of IDM and Post Rock. The track “Rivers & Mountains” sparks the album into existence with very little electronics. The piece is comprised almost entirely of cleverly layered guitar work. The second track, “The suns that teach the sky to dance” juxtaposes playful electronic melodies with distorted glitch beats. Definitely a nod to Aphex Twin. “Freedoms eroded” is the first track on the album that really mixes everything together into something that can only be described as Post Rock IDM. A sampled voice shouts “I will make you understand” as Sekotis presents his distinct sound. “Eldhraun”, the final track on the album, is over ten minutes of slow burning goodness. Drones, percussive melodies, and shimmering synths ebb and flow into an aural bliss.. Vocal on tracks 2 & 4 by Lucy Nickholds. Design & art by Mike Kram.
