Comment: this bunch of 10 tracks is somehow oppressive and relieving at the same time. Mostly it consists of rigid electro(nica) and austere drones, almost industrial music-alike sonic elements providing somehow dance-appealed seeds within it. The point, however, is it is not a sort of danceable music for the human being. It rather describes robots to shake their clanging hands and rattling fingers in the rhythm of these vibrations. On the other side, these spasmodic and awkward robots seem to have acquired some human characteristics to be gentle and kind in their own terms. It is a remarkable characteristic throughout the album. It can be concluded that the humanism is allowed to exist without the human beings themselves on this occasion. The more you listen to it the more it is getting softened stepwise the more it will absorb and deny its hirsute nature. It is like living under such a star which used to bomb its subjects with tickling electromagnetic flows and arousing particles. All in all, it is the outstanding result of a mind-blowing idea. The artist is promoting his 11 albums through his own blog (King Of The Glitch) of whom Harmony Beijing is the latest one. Undoubtedly we are going to arrive at it sometime.
