Daniel Avery's Together in Static consists of material he composed for a pair of seated, socially distanced concerts at the Hackney Church in London. Continuing a prolific streak for the artist, it arrives the year following a collaboration with Alessandro Cortini (Illusion of Time) and the surprise-released solo effort Love + Light. Even more so than his other albums, this is decidedly a reflective set designed for home listening, with much of the material in ambient or downtempo mode. A thumping industrial techno track called "Yesterday Faded" appears early in the program, and its tough, craggy beats are surrounded by soft, atmospheric synths like a layer of mist partially obscuring a massive iceberg. "Nowhere Sound" is much closer to the Casino Versus Japan/Ulrich Schnauss school of downtempo IDM, with slightly tangy synths shining over slo-mo beats. "Fountain of Peace" seems like an exaggeration of trip-hop, with an absurdly blown-out, hissy drum loop and synths that seem to be reaching deep inside one's soul; the effect is both soothing and bludgeoning. Recalling early-'90s ambient techno at its most melancholy, "A Life That Is Your Own" also has a mystical vibe, but isn't sludgy. "Hazel and Gold" is much sunnier, sounding like an attempt to leave fear and tragedy in the past and look on the bright side. The only other uptempo track on the album, "Endless Hours," has more focused, energetic beats than "Yesterday Faded," and overall it seems more determined and motivated. The gorgeous closer "The Midnight Sun" is a straight-up flashback to the Artificial Intelligence era, and without getting bombastic, its optimism seems to outshine the lingering darkness of the rest of the record. Considering how quickly the album came together, it feels like a spontaneous rush to translate the emotions of being away from dance clubs for a year into music, with hope and anticipation winning in the end. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

Illusion of Time is the result of several years' worth of collaboration between techno producer/DJ Daniel Avery and analog synth master Alessandro Cortini (a member of Nine Inch Nails). The two developed ideas remotely, previewing the fruits of their labor with a limited single available at a festival in 2017, then convened in a hotel room while Avery was touring with NIN in 2018, completing the album in a matter of hours. The release is far removed from Avery's hazy, acid-bath techno, but minus the propulsive beats, his frayed, shoegaze-like textures are unmistakable, and mesh well with Cortini's isolated electronics. The album veers between haunting, slightly apocalyptic moodscapes and more reflective moments that are almost soothing, yet there's still an unshakeable sense of melancholy throughout. Illusion of Time's title track is certainly one of its more refreshing pieces, with a gorgeous, Cluster-like keyboard melody drenched in trippy delay, but instead of making it sound clear and cloudless, they cover it in a wash of hiss and distortion. "At First Sight" similarly buries a lonesome yet irrepressible melody in thick fog, like a battered heart that refuses to break down completely. A steady, gentle analog synth pulse frames the lapping waves of feedback during "Enter Exit," and while the track generally feels a bit chaotic but hopeful, "Inside the Ruins" has a similar push/pull effect yet sounds much more desolate and closer to the brink of destruction. Close to the end of the album is "Water," an astonishingly pretty piece of shimmering drone-gaze that originally appeared as the A-side of the duo's 2017 single. (The much darker B-side, "Sun," is sequenced as the full-length's foreboding intro.) Illusion of Time fittingly sounds rougher and more spontaneous than any of Avery's work or Cortini's preceding recordings, particularly his 2019 Mute release Volume Massimo, but its highlights seem to pull divine inspiration out of practically nothing. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

Directly following an ambient collaboration with modular synth master Alessandro Cortini (Illusion of Time) and a club 12" with Roman Flügel as Noun (Meeting of the Minds), Daniel Avery finished a solo LP and spontaneously decided to release it with no advance hype. Love + Light touches on several sides of Avery's personality, delivering propulsive dance tracks as well as reflective experiments, and diverting into other modes that he hasn't explored as frequently. "Dusting for Smoke" and "Dream Distortion" are prime examples of the type of hissing, hazy techno he excels at, with heavy, pounding beats and tense, dreamy synth textures, all fine-tuned for major club impact. "Darlinnn" keeps up a steady beat but builds much more gradually, working up to a frothy peak and then simmering down. Surrounding all these tracks are experimental pieces like the distorted drone of "London Island" (echoing his work with Cortini) and the gentle, floating harp interlude "Katana." "Searing Light, Forward Motion" takes things in a much harsher direction, with clattering, distorted breakbeats reminiscent of Christoph de Babalon or DJ Scud, and furious acid synths sounding like an angry robot on the rampage. "Infinite Future" is much more serene, with shoegazey synths gliding over a slightly jittery post-dubstep beat, and other tracks like "Into the Arms of Stillness" and "A Story in E5" dip into swirling, tenderhearted downtempo IDM in the vein of Casino Versus Japan or Freescha. "Fuzzwar" is in a similar vein, yet somehow it's one of the least fuzzy-sounding tracks on the album. Wrapping it all up is "One More Morning," a light, shimmering electro piece perfect for greeting the sunrise. While Love + Light feels a lot rougher than Avery's first two solo albums, and initially takes a few more listens to fully appreciate, it's just as inspired and creative. © Paul Simpson /TiVo
