Just in case there were any doubts that electronic music can have as much of a political voice as other genres, Blanck Mass silences them with World Eater. Inspired by the shock and upheaval that surrounded Brexit and other nationalist political movements that emerged in 2016, Benjamin John Power transforms furious noise, drones, and the surprisingly danceable elements of Dumb Flesh into vivid portraits of division and turmoil that sound big enough to engulf a planet and intricate enough to consume it from within. Power has always excelled at pitting sonic extremes against each other, but these contrasts have rarely sounded as meaningful -- or disorienting -- as they do on World Eater, where wildly divergent elements sit next to each other like red and blue states and collide with each other in fascinating ways. Like the unnatural calm before all hell breaks loose in a horror movie, "John Doe's Carnival of Error" begins the album with a delicate melody that feels descended from "Tubular Bells." It sets the stage perfectly for the nine-minute exorcism that is "Rhesus Negative," where pummeling, screeching electronics are joined by choral vocals and a celestial countermelody in what sounds like the ultimate showdown between good and evil. It's one of Power's most exciting pieces of music to date, but World Eater's most thought-provoking moments aren't always the harshest. As the album's midsection dips into prettier territory, Power soothes listeners as much as he shocks them, bringing emotions to the fore. "The Rat" is Blanck Mass' version of synth-pop, pairing stomping jock-rock beats and a sugary melody with alternately menacing, amusing, and poignant results, while the haunting "Please" and "Silent Treatment" surround strangely affecting vocal snippets that sound like they escaped from an R&B track with woozy synth textures and percussion that crunches like snapping jaws. Despite World Eater's extreme palette, what Power expresses with these sounds isn't black-and-white (although his suggestion to "Please support your local LGBT and animal rights organizations" in the liner notes tells his audience where his sympathies lie). The luminous "Hive Mind" closes the album on a beautifully ambivalent note, the poignancy of its swelling vocals making it even more unsettling. Considering his legacy, it's all the more impressive that Power found even more challenging places to go with his music, but World Eater's focused chaos is some of his finest work yet. ~ Heather Phares

Neoclásico: un nuevo mundo en la frontera entre el electro y el clásico

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... En los últimos años, todos estos nombres tan de moda se han agrupado bajo la vasta e imprecisa etiqueta de «neoclásico». Pero, a decir verdad, este «escenario» se parece más a una banda heterogénea de inquietos artistas que mezclan instrumentos clásicos y producción electrónica –desde una supuesta conexión con los pioneros del minimalismo estadounidense… que deleitan los sentidos, y que abren perspectivas a ambos lados de su espectro musical.

David Rodigan, la voz del reggae

Desde hace cuarenta años David Rodigan es la voz del reggae de la FM británica. Pero este amante del género, que comenzó su andadura en la BBC Radio London en 1978, no se ha limitado a su labor como locutor radiofónico sino que ha pinchado en clubs y festivales hasta convertirse en todo un campeón del soundclash, tradicional competición jamaicana de DJ (“selectors”) que se enfrentan entre sí poniendo discos, normalmente versiones especiales de hits de reggae denominadas “dubplates” –en las que el artista cambia la letra para mencionar o elogiar el nombre del selector–. Coincidiendo con la publicación de su libro Life in Regga, a principios de este 2018, David Rodigan ha hablado para Qobuz de esas versiones exclusivas, de sus viajes a Jamaica, de sus frenéticas sesiones y de su “místico” encuentro con Bob Marley.

John Carpenter, imagen y sonido

John Carpenter pertenece a esa categoría de directores que también componen la música de sus películas. Con motivo de la edición de Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, álbum para el cual ha vuelto a grabar sus temas más conocidos, resulta obligatorio revisar la doble trayectoria de este maestro del cine de terror y de acción.
