Comment: you are searching for profound and tranquil soundscapes to find a remedy for suffocating your desperate feels and borderline madness. You are aware of the premiss the ideal album must have the imposing centre point being surrounded by many and frequently changing satellite sounds. The method makes sense. Josè Barrera aka Bite's 9-track release on basic_sounds makes sense in that way. It is just an infinite moving where it makes no sense to remember the starting point and the finishing point. Any temporal moment and chord makes sense. The music is very present in any present moment. Given that you have entered into the sphere of continuous present and it does mean the term time makes no sense altogether. That's the point. Musically you hear at times hammering at times slightly lofty piano chords followed by one another and at the same time being accompanied by acidic electronic counterpoints, microscopic noises and ennobling natural sounds. For example, the self-titled track is a fabulous incantation full of profound, iterative, magic reality. Indeed, it bites you. And the rest of eight tracks do the same effect. Superb work by any means. I guess if Beethoven could have had the same technical possibilities he would produce an analogous stuff but instead of the known musical and historical reputation he might have a more hidden influence upon us.
