Wojciech Rusin – Syphon (AD 93, LP/digital)

Following up on 2019’s »The Funnel«, the instrument maker and composer Wojciech Rusin releases the second part of his »alchemical« trilogy on a label that is known more for advanced club sounds than for avant-garde contemporary music. It’s a good match nonetheless, since on »Syphon«, the Polish artist explores the sounds and structures of speculative Old and Renaissance music with, among other things, 3D-printed instruments. The future is extrapolated from the past and we are fortunately able to witness this from the present. A thoroughly exceptional, brilliant work.
