Noise meets jazz one more time in Gate’s lastest release Deconstructed
Gate is a noise project based in Tokyo, Japan and they have release their lastest album on Fluttery Records. The new album is called Deconstructed.
The music contains noise, free jazz, drone, ambient, industrial elements. Lets have look at a new review about the album. Jan Williem Broek (music writer / DJ) has written a review about the band and their lastest album:
“Lajos creates improvisations with 7-string bass, guitar, sousen, electric morin khuur, zarazara, and various other effects and noise makers. Half a year after the project was founded, the Japanese wind instrument player Taka joined the project, and with his saxophones, flutes, ryuuteki (dragon flute), recorders, whistles, and didgeridoo, he adds an extra dimension to the project’s sound. Lajos’s philosophical background undoubtedly contributed to the way of making music, although one shouldn’t take the term ‘music’ too literally. He refers to Spinoza who said that freedom is illusion. Nevertheless, they create a free sound, albeit as free as the listener experiences it. What I mean is that the one will hear unstructured cacophony, while the other recognizes patterns and structure. To that extent freedom stays an illusion. Let me take the freedom to say that they manage to create immense tension between recognizable and undefinable sound. They open a ‘gate’ to your own interpretation. CDs ‘no exit’ (2009) and ‘iterations’ 2010 so fascinating. The sounds almost became secondary to their elaboration. The result is a kaleidoscopic whole of drones, noise, jazz, industrial, doom, and Japanese traditional music, in which the sounds freely ‘wander’ through indescribable, capricious soundscapes. |˟˟| now released the CD ‘deconstructed’, which lets go of the founding principles. Philosophy also means time for reflection and seeing things in a different light.With this, Lajos moves into the territory of Aube, Merzbow, KK Null, Otomo Yoshihide, God and John Zorn. It is like looking at a 3D image and suddenly seeing depth. Between the gates of the different dimensions, the music of |˟˟⌡ moves in a wayward and most of all captivating way. Incomprehensibly good!”
The album is highly recommended for listeners of noise, drone, ambient, industrial music also for the people looking for new tastes in jazz.
