Curacy: Through Cassette

“Through,” the debut full-length from Finnish experimental electronic artist Curacy, feeds on the tension between citation and innovation characteristic ofmodern composition. Painstaking sampling, sound design, and arrangement predicated on studious and thorough attention to the historical arc of jazz, modern classical, and contemporary electronica coalesce in a deeply evocative suite of pieces whose dexterity and life belie its synthetic origins. Curacy's exhaustive study and judicious reference is not an end unto itself, mind you, but a launchpad into the uncharted depths of the electronic avant-garde.
