- Words: Martin Turenne
- Label: Viv
What we have here is a failure to communicate. With Nowe:le, the microscopic Vivo label pulls off a gutsy heist of the Clicks & Cuts template, uniting artists from Poland, Japan and the United States under one pseudo-experimental banner. Dime-a-dozen digital effects abound here, but Texas's Yume brightens things up with some inspired use of wind chimes as both percussive and harmonic instruments. Like too much computer-made music these days, Nowe:le plays like nothing more than middle-of-the-road esotericism, proferring seemingly aimless, unfinished pieces. Where's the love?
