BEN LUKAS BOYSEN & SE­BAS­TIAN PLANO

UNCUT - - New Albums - WYN­D­HAM WAl­lACe

Ev­ery­thing ERASED TAPES 8/10 un­earthly, am­bi­ent clas­si­cal score to dig­i­tally cre­ated worlds This first col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Ar­gen­tine com­poser Plano and Ger­man sound de­signer (and, un­der his Hecq pseu­do­nym, elec­tronic pro­ducer) Boysen is dis­tilled from a three-hour sound­track ac­com­pa­ny­ing the in­fi­nite uni­verses dis­cov­ered in Ev­ery­thing, a com­puter ‘game’ de­signed by David O’Reilly, who worked on Spike Jonze’s Her. even with­out the game’s vi­su­als, Ev­ery­thing of­fers an oth­er­worldly ex­pe­ri­ence. For the most part, it’s as tran­quil as ti­tles like “In­side Air” and “Open­ing Light” sug­gest, full of slowly de­cay­ing pi­ano and vi­o­lin melodies, but even at its most jar­ring, as on the string-dense “Aa­lystice”, the duo thank­fully avoid rais­ing pulse rates.
