The Future of Music One Record at a Time

Ale Hop | Apophenia
Buh Records (LP/DL)

Ale Hop (Alejandra Cardenas) is a Peruvian composer, based in Berlin and Apophenia (her sophomore effort after 2017’s Bodiless) is my second-look introduction to her work. Much of what Cardenas brings to the table are intriguing a/v eye of the mind processed through video and performance. What comes through as strictly audio should, in fact, be the soundtrack (or motto) for what we always strive to capture at Toneshift, a pure experimental spirit that abridges many genres and by-passes many more, in temporal vignettes that are 100% exploratory and fearless.

There are gentle, fleeting passages to Augury (as seen above) which starts these eight tracks with a heck of a moody ground. The percussion is sparse and spacey at times, the springing, bending effects play atop a near black backdrop, like counting stars. This is not a drone record, but manages to…

Shadow of a Shadow by Cyanching
By TJ Norris – Toneshift – August 10, 2019

” “I try to redefine sampling,” she explains. “If I like a sound, I don’t just record it, I try to recreate it. If I love a bassline on a track for example, I try to play it myself and capture the qualities that attract me. By doing that you create a new sound within an old pattern.”
