Bibio - Fi
    #4046822 - 04/12/05 06:15 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)


Bibio - Fi 2004 - Mush Records
Quote:


From Pitchfork:
Stephen Wilkinson, the English composer/producer known as Bibio, was recommended to the experimental electronic music stalwarts at Mush Records by one of the genre's pacesetters, Boards of Canada's Marcus Eoin.

The album is not abrasive; in fact, it's soothing, but it is also saturated with distortion and synthetic effects that seem to represent technology's degradation of the equilibrium of ecological cycles. Or perhaps the modulating crackle winding through the idyllic guitar lines, birdsongs, and ambient wind effects represents nothing less than the human virus that creates the technology, which will eventually annihilate those tenuous, fragile sounds-- a paranoid but viable vision with which Boards of Canada, too, seem familiar. But Bibio forgoes Boards' precise rhythmic thrust in favor of more meandering, ramshackle compositions that paint ephemeral imagery in broad strokes of primary colors, wafting through your peripheral vision. His analog bent and penchant for lo-fi, malfunctioning equipment bestow upon fi an aura of intimacy and transparency, where each sound that comprises the spacious armatures is discernible.




Imagine recording found sounds and your own samples with a half-broken tape recorder. Then going home to your hi-fi set-up and mixing this distorted, wavy, lo-fi music to include techniques only available with the gear and the know-how. Panning, circling, reversing, cut-ups... it's a gorgeous, ambient mix of lo-fi and hi-fi. Accurately, it's called just fi. It's great, for anyone who loves ambient and especially Boards of Canada.

Yes, that's one stellar album! really dreamy and ethereal. good on ya for spreading the word.

Have you heard Labradford? It's more straight-up but not by a whole lot. spaced acoustic guitar and washed-out subtle drums.
