Review: Eleh – Floating Frequencies/Intuitive Synthesis by Jayson

It’s difficult to review an Eleh album, and maybe also pointless. Still as an entity, Eleh are fascinating to me. They, it, whatever you want to call Eleh remains the most singularly pure  musical experience available. One of the most fascinating things is how Eleh is divorced from everything. No information available, no website, no clue as to who, what, or why. Then there are the releases themselves, usually vinyl, a few CDs. Limited editions that always sell out and are never re-pressed.

Just drone. Tracks that sound like experiments, ” Pulsing Study of  7 Sine Waves Part One” “Bass Pulse In Open Air”, etc. The purest drone, Eleh’s sound is heavy on the low-end. At low volume Floating Frequencies/Intuitive Synthesis is minimal to the point of being nearly subliminal. At higher volumes the depth of the lower end becomes apparent and the sound takes on an almost transformative quality. There is really nothing like this, that’s why Eleh releases are quickly becoming an automatic buy for me, that and their albums sell out so quickly.

Available on Important Records.
