The beauty of errors, asymmetry and imperfection are the defining features of ‚Imperfect‘, the latest release by Spanish sound artist Juan Antonio Nieto on the Viennese label Moozak. Often discarded or corrected, digital errors represent an inexhaustible source of sounds and unique and unrepeatable structures.’Imperfect‘ is an orderly chaos, a collection of reworked improvisations, in which some very obvious and other almost imperceptible errors give the work an essentially non-repeatable character.
In these highly abstract digital compositions structures of crystalline sharpness and rough Lo-Fi noise are contrasted – occasionally supplemented by Drones, which evoke a vague reminder of harmony. Filled with buzzing, crackling, sizzling and hissing sounds Imperfect sketches sceneries that do not suggest a natural origin, but evoke a credible alternative reality through their complexity – like a glitch anti-world that exists beyond our familiar environment and which we allow to break through into our domain in order to fill the space around us for 46 minutes.
