Debut from audio visual experimenter Biomass is titled Energy. Perhaps the energy Biomass speaks of is dark energy, an elusive, mysterious force that moves around us without being seen, felt, or heard. But these wavelengths have been detected are best deciphered through headphones. The patterns here resemble the electronic musical genres of Industrial, Psychedelic Industrial, Dark Ambient, IDM, and Ambient Trance. As well, the corporeal entites Klaus Schulze, Skinny Puppy, Autechre, Steve Roach and Tangerine Dream resemble these patterns. It sounds like steady beats are pushing at droning analog synthesizers pulling the listener into a wave of dark energy, plunging that listener into a sparkling darkness that ever increases in speed. In addition to this, the duration of these wavelengths increases. The initial example is 2:01 long and the final recording is nearly ten times as long at 22:33 which further sends the listener of repeated wavelength patterns into the far distant edges of space. There is still much we don’t understand about these forces such as how does the listener return to their original position before listening to these waves. We may never know but repeated study of these patterns might yet reveal some secret of the universe.
