KASSEL JAEGER
Aster 2LP (Gatefold)
23
eMego 235 / AUS / 2017
The frontier for French electroacoustic mystical music has traversed much ground since Pierre Schaeffer shuffled on the past and laid out a map without borders or designated ground. Inheriting the wisdom of past masters whilst forging a signature style of his own Kassel Jaeger sists as one of the premier explorers of these unknown worlds today. Comprised recently recorded tracks Kassel Jaeger presents a work of revisits and reworkings, one which acts as a hinge in both closing this particular chapter whilst opening up the windows to new sound world to come. In Aster we have a rich deep music replete with dark ambient sonorities swirling amongst intense buzzing tones. Often chilling and ominous this is a fearless music with abstracted corners and dynamic leverage. Unafraid to embed itself in the ongoing whirlpool of sonic progress. Jaegers output remains a thrilling body of exploration and ongoing transformation.
