Emerge are a solo project from Germany that has had music recently reviewed in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of experimental, electroacoustic, drone, idm, improv and minimalist music and this is a review of his live 2019 album "Materia" which was released by Attenuation Circuit.
Field recordings start off the album while the live set is over 30 minutes in length along with some voices also being utilized at times. A great amount of experimental and avant garde elements can also be heard in the music and as the tracks progresses traces of idm are added into the music.
A good amount of electroacoustic sounds are also brought into the live set along with some drones and elements of electronic music. the music also brings in a great amount of minimalist structures as well as adding in a great amount of programmed beats and all of the music is also composed in an improv style.
On this recording Emerge plays a musical style that takes experimental, electroacoustic, drone, idm, improv and minimalist music and mixes them together to create a sound of his own and the production sounds very dark with all of the music being recorded live.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Emerge and if you are a fan of experimental, electroacoustic, drone, idm, improv and minimalist music, you should check out this album. 8 out of 10.
