If some of the tracks on AARDE A Whole Day (DirtyCDR 025) seem to evolve like slow surges of the deep sea or suggest the mesmerizing thrum of engines, the rush of water or screeches of gulls, the explanation could lie in this one unusual fact. Lois Laplace is both composer and a professional sailor. Aarde is a collaboration of Laplace on Kyma, and Guillaume Gargaud on computer and prepared guitar. Laplace, who describes the sound of Kyma as "very pure," has a talent for revealing subtle and delicate details in the midst of an industrial environment like a commercial ship. Whether focusing intently on the minutest variations of light reflecting off the surface of the water or constructing soundscapes of soothing engine drones with in-your-ear glitches and mysteriously delicate noise bands that evolve at just the right pace, Aarde's music is simultaneously vast and delicate: truly minimalist without ever becoming boring. You can listen to some of the tracks on Virb and order the CD from Dirty Demos.
