“Gradient Descent” is the fourth Metalogue EP. Exploring variations on a single melodic theme, the record travels from dark cavernous ambience to precise digital structures, crossing through sweeping synthetic textures and industrial claustrophobia along the way.
Gradient Descent was written and performed for a Chaos Theory event headlined by Jarboe and Farther Murphy, at St Pancras Old Church, London on 23rd October 2017. The piece features custom made electro-acoustic instruments, field recordings and live electronics. The release on Abstrakt Reflections is a studio arrangement of the original material, integrating additional sound design and layers of live sound from the church performance.
The tracks 1 & 2 &3 are based on Simenon « La Porte » from 1962, not a crime novel from the master who created Maigret.
The tracks 4 and 5 are based on Silverberg’s « Man in the Maze » from 1969, SF at its best.
The following songs are chants reflecting the variations.
I thank the label for accepting me in the never ending list of great releases.
This album is dedicated to you, for your enthusiasm on new sounds and curiosity.
Your dear I,Eternal

FEDERICO DAL POZZO (Venice,1976) lives in Turin, Italy.
Concrete Composer and Musician, studied drumming with Mario Bracco and Vittorio Panza. In 1999 he joined the DADADANG (percussion parade in motion) with he has playing around the biggest festivals in Europe and beyond (Moscow, Paris, London, Graz,…).
The content of this work is a response to what I consider to be one of the main myths about music, in the context of my (and the rest of the composers in this compilation) current hometown.
This Idea primarily circulates around the people, projects, groups and etc. that best adhere to a popular music paradigm.
The romantic idea I’m referring to is the existence of an actual performer (in the more traditional sense performer – instrument) for the music itself to have value.
To which we respond with this tracks.

It was such a joy to walk the bridges between our both musical universe,

This is not a live recording and yet it also is. Part of this concert was ‘semi-acoustic’, not going over the sound system, but using separate smaller speakers and radio speakers. The audience was asked to do a recording on whatever means they had with them, which turned out to be harddisc recorders, camera and mobile phone. All of the ones I received afterwards were used to create the music you are hearing, a collage of various recordings from various points in this space. So its live and not really. I mixed it but did not really edit, as in taking out the ‘bad parts’, it.

“And if I failed to mention this detail in its proper place, it is because you cannot mention everything in its proper place, you must choose, between the things not worth mentioning and those even less so. For if you set out to mention everything you would never be done, and that’s what counts, to be done, to have done.” SB

As Thuoom closes his second grand cycle in order to begin a studio hiatus, there are two compilation albums released simultaneously.
During the last ten years or so, while working on the Thuoom sound, Tuomo has also experimented with several (harsh) noise/avant-garde themes. As these pieces never quite fitted any other place, they are presented here for the first time, together and in a chronological order. Spellonia features Mala playing synth with Thuoom.
Instruments used on this record: algorithms, breathing, broken cord, Casio CTK-601 synth, coin, computer keyboard, cord, diarrhoea, electric guitar, electroacoustic guitar, faucet, glitches, human voice, kettle, midi, note book, sofa, speaker feedback, staple, table
