This is the seventh installment in the “i.r.real” series, the solo project by Javier Piñango, using only a Korg MS-20 analog synth. “i.r.real 7” is an obscure, dense and dry album ravaged with abrupt contrasts. A battle between silences and gritty atmospheric textures against rough gestures unchaining chunks of pure noise.
All of this arose from a thorough research of the limits of the MS-20. “i.r.real 7” derails the classic use of the korg synthesizer by prospecting its frequency ranges and exploring alternative was to play with its capabilities. Its all a complex process of noise musicalisation, an open framework of layers and layers of synth lines embracing a sort of sonic narrativity through tension as the key element.
