Con-v is proud to present the brand new work by argentinean noise master Pablo Reche, again in short format. Reche is well known because his performances around the world and releases on labels as fukkgod, con-v, the locus of or testing ground.
'Conexión' show us a less dark Reche but stronger and energetic as never before; his pictures of the city are still there but this time from the perspective of the machine; his classical extreme use of noise is now more controlled maybe less emotional, more rational. maybe his strongest work to date and a new step on his excellent discography.
This is a new release of Argentinean experimental artist Pablo Reche on Madrid’s based Con-V label on a 3" CD-R format in a limited run of 50 numbered copies.
"Conexión EP" comprised 5 tracks of 17 minutes and finds Reche forging a new proposal - less ambient drone like, focused on both snippets and microscopic sounds and multi-layered processed noises, creating tension between subtle timbres and harsh high dynamic range.

So far the work of Pablo Reche has extended mostly in the areas of noise music. Loud but always with a sense of field recordings. Here on his new 3"CDR 'Conexion' it seems that he makes a better balance between the noise and the sources, in this case field recordings. The noise still there, but its pushed back in favor of the fields. In 'Camp' the line hum of a broken cable is the source, and on top Ikeda/Alva Noto like signals make interferences. In 'Golu' things are turned down with static hiss being processed to a lower point. Mechanical, motorized objects seem to have his strong interest as shown in these tracks, but it seems to me, even when I don't picture his entire discography in front of me right away, the balance between the pure noise elements and making things more musical prevails here, and it marks, I think a big step ahead.
