Whether is an experimenter known for his releases on Entr’acte, Helen Scarsdale, Line and baskaru. The field recordist is accustomed to calibrating addictive acoustic explorations of space and resonant objects. The sounds in Against Nature were generated during a residency with Kunstsenter Agder, in Kristiansand, Norway. There are five tracks. The longer ones (the first, third and fourth) with very dilated sequences, turn in the guise of exhausting drones or polyrhythms pervaded by free form clutches and penetrating pulsations, with adventurous evolutions. The shorter tracks are more exciting and have immediate hooks, the second with a haunting riff, the fifth with bass and powerful frequencies, accompanied by a vibration that is quite physical and addictive. Such a dynamic interpretation of “nature” here becomes a pretext to further ask ourselves what is the specific essence of music.
