Album · 1995 · 7 Songs. Oval experimented with skipping CDs on 1994's Systemisch, but this 1995 follow-up is where he really gets lyrical with the technique. That may sound like a contradiction, but it's not: The 24-minute "Do While" is a daydream rendered in bell tones and staccato chimes, and the rest of the album is just as hazy and hypnotic, from the radio static of "Store Check" to the rumpled shoegaze of "Line Extension". Rarely has music so experimental sounded so much like a warm embrace.
is the fourth album by German electronic music group Oval. It was released in 1995 via Mille Plateaux in Europe and in 1996 by Thrill Jockey in the United States. It was the final Oval release to feature Sebastian Oschatz and Frank Metzger. It has received critical acclaim.
Whether or not you can tolerate 94 Diskont’s unorthodox sound, it is hard not to see its influence on music since its production. Though few artists would categorize their music as pure, unadulterated glitch, the genre’s influence can now be heard in electronica, dance, and even on the outskirts of pop music. This album will always remain a classic because of its originality and timelessness.
94 Diskont is undoubtedly a standout in the field of electronically advanced, glitch-heavy music. In addition to having clear resonance with those primarily interested in process, this record resides in an autonomous and highly aesthetic sonic universe, where bits of production and granulated noise easily melt into warm, repetitive arrangements. 94 Diskont was made with a lot of productive mediation and gadgetry, but the seams don't show. The textures are thick and the melodies are challenging, nowhere more so than on the epic opening track "Do While.
☆☆☆ ~ Astoundingly virtuous album. The carefully crafted production is ecstasy to my ears. It's a fascinating piece sculptured with a lushly quality sound design and very well conceived concept.
