  • Experimental electronica 
  • Avant-electronica 
  • Electronic music 
  • Post-industrial 
  • Abstract 
  • Glitchtronica 
  • Minimal techno

Comment: this is a split release by a couple of projects both of them consisting of the pair of experienced musicians. Indeed, Sturqen's music seems to be more abstract and algorithm driven and VÄäristymä`s 5-notch is more loose and floating coming at times quite close to a sophisticated art pop/indie electronic number. In comparison to Sturqen's part it is not surprising at all because VÄäristymä's compositions are shorter while Sturqen's tenure is clearly conceptual because of consisting of two 15-minute long tracks (Metrologia part 1, and part 2). It explores the colours, reverberations and shades of electronic music within its concept. Yet it does not mean that this couple of tracks used to chime a bit devoid of events while being restrained within the conceptual borders. One can perceive the broad borders surrounding the music. For sure, one can hear influences of the two most praised underground electronic duos of the 90s, Autechre, and Pan Sonic. But not only – it is like an electronic release spawned by a composer having an academic background especially regarding those kind of cassette compilations released by German composers during the 80s and 90s. On the other hand, VÄäristymä's music also involves glitched-out and recycled noises at the fringe so it is a release of providing a joint part between artists additionally to idiosyncratic appearances. The joint release is a part of the discography of Nervu.
