This is Deconstructing Interference, the roundup, dealing with all the non-metal and experimental stuff that I find interesting. If you want to be considered for this column or have anything else to recommend, drop me an e-mail at

Scott WalkerThe Childhood of a Leader

Starting off as a baroque pop and art pop musician, Scott Walker went through an ovidian metamorphosis in the ‘90s, starting from Tilt and peaking with The Drift. The plunge into avant-garde carried on and saw a collaboration with Sunn O))), and film scores, including Leos Carax’s Pola X. The Childhood of a Leader is the latest film score from Walker, who plunges into a Stravinsky-ian orchestral mode, depicting the shaping of a child’s beliefs and values towards becoming an authoritarian leader. The film idea is definitely dark and Walker is the ideal artist to maximize this quality.

GILOrchids & Wasps

Berlin-based producer GIL is performing a precise deconstruction of dance music with his latest EP, Orchids & Wasps. The precision of the steady beat is shaken to its core, as the artist moves towards chaotic interpretations of club music. Frantic in its perspective, the EP goes through swift changes, from post-club sceneries, bizarre rhythmic patterns, returning to form with tribal infusions, exploding with abrupt snare hits and dispersing to abstract notions. The two remixes of the final track “Onset,” byJ.G. Biberkopf and Imaabs provide an additional outlook in GIL’s perspective.

ShapednoiseDeafening Chaos Serenity

A few months back, Nino Perdone (Shapednoise) was creating craters and producing harsh noise for his latest album, Different Selves. His new EP, Deafening Chaos Serenity sees him following down a similar path, further pushing the boundaries of his equipment along with the sanity of his listeners. The contributing producers, Roly Porter and Rabit, do an exceptional job of bringing their characteristics to the mix, the first in the form of waves of drone, the second in explosive sonic collages of noise.

Oren AmbarchiHubris

Oren Ambarchi is mostly known from his collaborations with Sunn O))), Jim O’Rourke and Keiji Haino, but his solo records are just as impressive. Through the years he released a series of diverse works, promoting his interest in improvisational music, free form, ambient and minimalism. The release of Quixotism a couple years appeared to be his most stellar release yet, only to be surpassed by Hubris. In his latest work Ambarchi carries on with the minimalistic form that made Quixotism so appealing, but enhances it further with his heavier improvisational leanings, producing an intoxicating listen.

Ilpo VaisanenSyntetisaattori Musiikkia Kuopiosta

Vaisanen is best known as half of Pan Sonic, a monumental Finnish experimental electronic duo that disbanded in 2009. As the name of the group lets on, these guys were bringing in a ton of diverse influences, creating a truly kaleidoscopic sound. Returning now with his second solo release in 18 years, Vaisanen shifts his focus on his hometown of Kuopio, with the composer providing a descriptive detailed note. alongside the promo, of the town’s history and culture. This record is essentially an extension of Vaisanen’s memories of Kuopio and his view of the town, radiating with a deeply personal element.


Limerence is not only Misantrop’s debut offering, but it is also the first record out of his new label, Foul-Up. The producer from Denmark displays a remarkable aptitude when it comes to the history of electronic music, ranging from the techno vibes and industrial beats, to garage emotion and house grooves. But this is not a retro work, and even though Misantrop’s sound is established in solid foundations, he finds ways to further add to a great recipe. A listen to “Nocturnal Emissions” where a psychedelic guitar appears, bringing a blues tone with an experimental mentality, reveals how daring an artist he is.

ShiftedSix Steps to Resurgence

Guy Brewer, man behind Shifted, is launching his new label Drifting Over. Three minimal tracks, taking on percussive elements and an elusive structure make up its first release. Brewer goes as far as reaching an abstract noise level in this work. The tracks were recorded about three years ago and even though it depicts another time for Shifted, it reminds us just how meticulous a production and deep meditative states Brewer is able to achieve.

Katie GatelyColor

In her sophomore record, Katie Gately offers a reinterpretation of pop music. Through sonic collages and intricate design the producer sets out on a journey from the fun side of pop music to its more bleak and melancholic instances. Color succeeds in producing this alternative vision, which naturally bring comparisons to Holly Herndon, but where Herndon offers focused compositions, Gately appears to be more interested in the joys of sonic exploration and its capabilities.

Daniel WycheOur Severed Sleep

Sleep problems? I can relate to that. But who said only bad things can come out of unpleasant situations? Daniel Wyche is an intriguing experimental musician, active in the Chicago scene, and alongside drummer Ryan Packard (Fonema Consort, Skeletons) builds a meditative album on his chronic sleep problems. Based on guitar feedback, this is a work of abstract experimentation. Elusive and yet overwhelming, the record becomes a psychedelic journey through improvisational means, including furious free rock and hardcore-esque outbreaks. An album that will let not you drowse off often comes from someone with chronic sleep problems.

Moor MotherFetish Bones

Describing a record such as Fetish Bones as harsh does it no justice. Moor Mother might not have been around for long, but her music feels mature. Her latest work is structured around shorts bursts of assault, springing from noise aesthetics and free-jazz influences, looking towards the beyond as fellow Afrofuturistic artists do. The work is graphic in its description, taking us on a journey through time (in a “DIY Time Machine)” that might not be pleasant, but it is essential.

Icon Cristals/t

Here we have the debut album of Icon Cristal, originally recorded in 2010 and released for the first time in 2015. Laurent Boulouard, main force behind this project, makes an intriguing scenery through e-drums, synth pads and keyboards, taking on the repetition of krautrock and the unpredictability of glitch as a foundation. Further experimentation has its place, and makes an astounding appearance, as the music moves within spoken words territories, with the help of Karollina Suzcabrr, and well into free jazz, led by Cedric Thimon’s sax.
