Reviews:
(Xactionmusic) Echoes of short baritone sax blasts fly out of the speakers, dart around you, smack into the air behind your head, then fly back into a layered landscape of elongated tones that might have been derived from the same instrument, a reminder of Bernard Parmegiani’s De Natura Sonorum (1975) or Espèces d’espaces (2001). Pet The Tiger / Brain Lucas released Gaze Emanations through Public Eyesore on September 1, 2019. Sounds are the mirage of the human spirit, and these are the compositions which reflect the struggles and wonderment’s of life; through a sparsity of dynamical changes in sounds and how they are presented. From tracks like Radial Garden, No Bones or Little Feather, the desolate melodies and dampened mechanical tones echo through a mass production of sound designs and torturous technique. Interweaving and adding character to the eccentricities that excite, dissonance teems with unfocused arrangements and an array of chaotic instrumentation; Sempre Piu!!! You certainly wouldn’t want to attempt predicting the next arrangements. Nothing here is conventional work, even harsh noise – or styles of – sway far from the path this album explores. I can only imagine the methods that Pet The Tiger / Brain Lucas used to conjure his compositions, sometimes sounding like various sounds are produced from touching or vibrating strings, or even experimenting with certain instrumental-gestures close to this touch. Masking and absorbing some baritone or trombone pitch while modulating its source, is almost uncanny to what some may consider a digression in sound and composition. However, the unity of vocals, classical instruments and frequencies which resonate from a collection of all these, is transportive in nature, as these are the elements where whimsical and other-worldly environments are found. The subtle variations and dissonance in tones and patterns are born from the field recordings which resemble a psychic riddle – intricately interweaving through our journey of musical transcendence. - Sutter Greaves
