Album Review
Reviewed 2011-11-28
Self-described as "glitch and melancholy," Pleq is the project of experimental musician Bartosz Dziadosz. Ambient and drony, all pieces here are combinations of synths and mild static/tape noise with lots of small but unique touches coming like the pops on a record. Tracks bring to mind the sentiment of abandoned futuristic human settlements and move between beauty and haunting

*1 (10:06) Subtle evolvement of cool orange and red synth tones behind the cover of softly chirping static. Quiet but beautiful
2 (5:35) Synths that sound like horns or airplanes are buoys in the ocean; mild chimes ring and fringes of transmissions from outer space are received
*3 (9:48) Soft radio static falls over ringing synth loops and chirps in the night
**4 (8:40) Anywhere green after a rainstorm; gorgeous key tones and mild hisses/ pops wrapped up in each other
5 (9:16) Darker; hollow bell synths along with nervous, crackling static and steam valve releases
6 (27:14) Slow, minimalist, and pitch black; high-pitched buzzing over long, deep keyboard loops
