A few days ago, we stumbled across the experimental stylings of Fiium Shaarrk.
The Great Swimming Pool of Liberation is a double single consisting of “Krypton Tunning” and the track that titles the release. It is Fiium Shaarrk’s second release for On the Corner, following on from “Bogan Sunrise” in 2014.
With “The Great Swimming Pool Of Liberation” Fiium Shaarrk explore further possibilities offered by their peculiar formation over the two tracks that, underneath their striking idiosyncrasies, reveal a subtle, yet dense, net of similarities.
“Krypton Tunning” and “The Great Swimming Pool Of Liberation” are two tableaux, two structurally static music constructions, whose linear components constantly combine and fall apart, like a sort of labyrinthine maze, in an endless and never repeating series of configurations.
“Krypton Tunning” develops these themes on a grid of numbers, while The “Great Swimming Pool Of Liberation” is built on the endless reconfiguations of unquantised waves.
The two works are meticulous, intricately woven pieces of sonic tapestry.
The titles and cover artwork are vaguely and fleetingly reminiscent of science fiction, consolidating “Krypton Tunning / The Great Swimming Pool Of Liberation” as a sort of “concept single”.
When it comes to churning out wicked experimental tunes this trio do not disappoint.
