Max Bondi: Convolution CD

Convolution is is the second album from Max Bondi on Tartaruga Records. A departure of sorts from previous work, the album is an exploration of constraint, limitations, and repetition. Fragments of sound fold in upon themselves, constructing patterns and melodies which overlay, interfere and diverge, varying from dense clusters of pulsing frequencies to torrents of cascading electronic notes. This is uncompromising machine music, but with a melodic edge, rhythmical but irregular, electrical rather than electronic. The record develops over the course of ten tracks, each one building on top of the previous in successive waves.
