The music of Metavari deftly rides a wave of energy from the beautifully subtle to the gorgeously maximal on a searing cascade of meticulously controlled chaos.
...might just be his best album yet. It’s like this strange dream you fall into 10 times in a row, each one a little more eschewed than the previous.
From One Way Static:
ABSURDA plays through as thoughtfully as the rest of Metavari's synth-heavy catalog, but there's an evolution here that explores a deeper level of experimentation. It is a chaotic collage of sound, rhythm, and melody; weaving through both harmonious passages and abrasive acousmatic sound. An almost "plunderphonic" execution of MIDI sequencing and percussion utilizing PCM synths and foley samples. It's clear that Metavari has found himself on a new path as he carves his niche in electronic music.
ABSURDA contains eleven original tracks; each of which have been scored in unison to a collection of short works from filmmaker David Lynch. Spanning Lynch's career, the films represent a breadth from student work (e.g., "Six Figures Getting Sick" and "The Alphabet") to contemporary pieces like the title track, "Absurda," and his now infamous animations: "Industrial Soundscape" and "Dream #7."
