Comment: a Finnish musician behind nom de plume Thuoom is back again with his brand new one. His last three or four albums (most of them had been issued in 2016) were quite abstract ones as if recorded with the onyx-tinged needle and cartridge. Fokus resembles more his earlier records at the end of the 00s where he did employ instruments and non-instruments colourfully to set out his aesthetical pieces of cake. In fact, it is a platform wherein much used to happen throughout the course due it seems to be cursed. I am wondering by myself is it either improvised music or determined sound. The term "Fokus" should be related to the last one though you cannot be thoroughly sure because playfulness is an essential part of the 12-track issue. And that's very pro. More profoundly, microscopic schemes are set up to constitute a macroscopic sonic universe and therefore revealing a perfect circuit as the whole. The butter between the parts to be functionally fulfilled ultimately is the aforementioned curse. Or magic. Or witchcraft. Furthermore, Thuoom as an artist represents the idea that all the kinds of sound are music or at least all these sounds could be morphed into music. From inferior crackles, signal-alike humming and cut-up vowels to wondrous droning and elliptically shaped electronic grandeur and techno pulsations at the most minimal extent. It can be considered as a next level within the so-called forest folk scene. On the other side, you can perceive similarities with another Finnish masterminds like Mika Vainio and Ilpo Väisänen. Get it and try to crack the core of this gem.
