Flowmotion Visual Pleasure Volume 2.0
- Words: Tim Pratt
- Label: Elektrolux
Combining visual representation with experimental and ambient electronic music is a no-brainer. Late-night German TV shows Flowmotion and Space Night have capitalized on this combination, emphasizing tripped-out motion and fluidity over structure in their programming, which has become popular with aging electronic music fans. Germany's Elektrolux label hosts an impressive array of experimental artists on this compilation-Iceland's Mùm, Aural Float, the Sushi Club and UNN-favoring crackly, fragmented audio bits, soothing textures and perky beat arrangements rather than the floaty ambient soundscapes of the Space Night soundtracks. Not every track is a keeper, but highlights by the likes of Index ID and Rescape fend off the occasional lapse into New Age pop.
