Vanity Publishing presents five hazy minimalist pieces by Luke Lund, turning focus on semantic satiation and phonaesthetics. Drawing references from dada sound poetry with the sole help of vocal repetition and audio processing, words are dismantled and reshaped into metaphoric iconographs made of evocative sonic textures that take form in a rich array of dynamics and rhythm.
From the suffocating existential dread of ‘Ääretön (Endless)’ to the frail return of the stretched-out ‘Valo (Light)’ or the sparkling hope of — well — ‘Toivo (Hope)’, Lund's newest is a proper treat that'll reward you through its explorations into possibilities of the human voice beyond the limits of language.
Reflecting on present day societal discourse, loss of meaning and semantics are put under spotlight here as well. Sonically speaking, most importantly considering the medium: if ever there was an EP for those confused, late/early zoning out hours, this would be it...
