Now this is the kind of music I’m into: electronic music that morphs into electronica which morphs into countless sub-genres. A part of it sounds like rhythmic radio dial turning and heavy tape editing, other parts sound like homemade digital sampling and triggering, where sound is battling with sound, that is having a kung fu battle with Janet Jackson, or is it Culture Club, or is it the intro to a children’s show? It’s unknown, and yet unknown. Those are some of the things that kept me listening to the twisted juggernaut of sound that is Dice (Laps), an album by Ormo.
It’s avant-garde to say the least, you could arguably dance to it but we’re talking in a very German experimental, free form fashion. Fans of IDM will love this, but this goes beyond the limits/boundaries of IDM. This will definitely irritate people who want their electronic music a bit more softer, more sane, more simple. This is about grabbing sounds, yanking it by its nunnies and just tying it around through the rectum. Go along the lines of what Jan Jelinek has done over the years, but then look in a mirror and say Biggie Smalls three times. Makes no sense? Find a way for this paragraph to make sense, and then you will find the tolerance to enjoy the insane digital sounds of Ormo. Thumbs up.
