Lower is dead; long live Lower in fresh and familiar pursuits like Age Coin. Featuring Kristian Emdal and Simon Formann at the controls, Performance (available today on Posh Isolation) is a welcome turn towards making plush techno productions that are both abstract and deeply personal.
“Trespassing on intimate territory,” explains Emdal, “cuts a transparent path for everyone to come walking. The album is ultimately a joint effort to process past as well as present experiences within father son relations. In order to make things tangible, scenes are drawn from memory and merged in a shared fictional collage…. “Take in the view or let yourself be part of the language. Let the engine run and dip in to the swampy collective intelligence. Performance is a hybrid memorial for all domestic actions committed in the name of love.”
