Esker – Destruction Time Again
Forgoing traditional melody and song-writing, Esker’s distinctive sound focuses on the interplay between noise, texture and rhythm. VOITAX is happy to present her stunning debut EP, which was assembled from various recording sessions over the past two years.
Formerly a drummer and guitarist in various bands in Melbourne’s noise scene, the influence of her past is evident in this record – a combination of processed guitar, mangled samples and bizarre, ghostly synthesis form a deep and complex sonic space.
The effect of almost a decade in Berlin is just as clearly heard in the EP’s thumping techno pulse. Wielded with a drummer’s feel for timing and meter, phasing rhythms, crunching lo-fi percussion and thundering kicks provide a solid backbone. Having become absorbed in techno culture, this is her contribution.
