I have no doubt that Routier (pn109) was composed for the most part with hardware; its sound betrays it. Each beat has its own personality, every glitch, strike, synthesizer and noise in general is carefully aleatoric (Is it possible for the casual to be meticulously cultivated also?) and fits perfectly.
The experience of the autor is also important when it comes time to produce. The broad musical baggage of Luis Marte, the production of numerous festivals, collaborations, and his constant research with new media allows him to interpret through his own prism tendencies that are raw, that do not tend to sail together in the ocean of electronic sound.
What do we have then?
Seven sessions riddled with singular concepts , rhythmic and minimalist, analog and digital, interlaced into a whole and conforming parity, exquisite and of good taste when it comes to relating each noise, beat, glitch, synthesizer, machine, module and who knows what other gadget worthy of praise between the jumble of cables and connections in the studio of Luis Marte.”
