Description

Ateleia - Swimming Against The Moments

Structurally founded on conscious allusions to "pop", "ambient", "electronica", but imbued with a high degree of critical distance, Ateleia music destabilizes classic notions of form and process in pursuit of a unique idea of song. Subtle melodies emerge snakelike from deep within floods of shimmering multicolored static; densely layered strata of interference rupture into moments of tonal clarity, only to be subsumed into the next span of shifting sound. Incorporating source material from a host of collaborators, skewed and reconfigured into a framework of constantly changing and decisive movement, the debut album from Ateleia (James Elliott) reveals a developed sense of composition and pacing across a range of approaches and textures. All eight of these tracks focus on elements of structure—and the decay of structure—with both the formed and the formless vying for space. The resulting sound is dense, angular and hypnotic, like watching red thread slowly twitch in the pulse of the tide.

Reviews

"Elliott's gaseous compositions are austere but not forbidding, strung out but not aimless. Despite the music's bracing astringency and cerebral economy of approach, there's just enough textural warmth and serendipitous, fleeting beauty to sustain an emotional as well as an intellectual response... Quietly breathtaking."

- Chris Sharp, The Wire No. 251

"A massive record, definitely one of the more powerful experimental computer music albums I've heard in some time."

- Keith Fullerton Whitman

"Touch and placement are everything here, and Elliott's sensitive ear for space and density guides the music steadily through its many mutations without losing track of its expressive core - the sure mark of a new and confident voice in the field of abstract electronics."

- Joe Panzner, Grooves Magazine No. 016
