Incipientium - Undergång
Feels like only yesterday we were introduced to the ethno-industrial queasiness of Gustav Danielsbacka's Incipientium project, which if nothing else is an alarming reminder that time is still very much not on our side/all flesh is in decay/our days are numbered (#everydayisworldgothday). In the 18 months since then we've seen a few other stray transmissions from the camp - a tape on Kashual Plastik; a CD-r on Forfall - though Undergång is perhaps the most obvious successor to the 2021 debut LP, an assertion afforded a little more weight given the first side of tracks here, grouped under the title Belastning, shares a name with that record. It's a slightly confusing conceit, and Danielsbacka certainly doesn't seem to be one to provide clear explanation ("show, don't tell"), so let's read these records as interconnected documents of an unfolding creative process, one with subtle differences and evolutions. Each side consists of a long form piece divided into five movements, the A exploring the abstracted, blown out tape experiments already familiar with the project, albeit with a slightly more refined hand, something a little more calculated and sinister lurking in the dissonance, while on the flip we're in less abrasive territory, lonely piano etudes merging into a mournful sax-led hymnal. It ends as it starts, a blast of static and free-form noise fading out into the ether, feeling not so much like an ending at all actually, more another iteration on that endless march of time... to hell knows what.
