APL022 >> NORMAL MUSIC - LET'S DO REALLY STRANGE THINGS AND CALL THEM NORMAL
	  [20.06.2004 | PARAPHRASING cLICKPUNK TRISTESSE]


“Normal Music is the choice of music for Normal people” is the 
statement of this mutual project of the swedish designer 
Thomas Ekelund, the Zeromoon Labelowner Jeff Surak and the 
Puerto-Rican Raphael Isarri. “Normal Music” is not so normal 
as the name might imply -  not just another boring laptop 
trio. They focus on merging real instruments, synths, bass 
guitar, autoharp, field recordings and record players to 
shape those many sound sources into “normal music” tracks. 
But what is this “Normal” all about? The referential review 
magazine “Vital Weekly” points it by claiming influences of 
Pan Sonic, Goem or Pole - a mixture between dubby, clicky 
rhythms in combination with rather noisy ambient fragments. 
The core is relatively dense, fleshy – if that's a suitable 
epithet - beats, at times slightly irregular and not easy to 
follow, bristling with electronic beeps, crackles, hisses, 
and what have you. Somewhere between the lines, or notes, 
to be precise, electroacoustic gratings, hardly perceptible 
ambient wafts or field recordings push their way through.

From the track titles, one might consider Normal Music to be 
political or with a certain Punk attitude. There is indeed a 
musical approach to click-punk, as the beats are sometimes 
quite cold and heartless (“Migratory Patterns Of The Youth”) - 
detailed, clear cut-up beats and complicated, clicky crunches 
characterizes this whole release, whereas “Pills, Pills, 
Pills for Mental Health” is more of a slo-mo slacker 
click-dub, which is a totally different direction to 
“Machines startle me with Great Frequency”, which is more 
sort of industrial field-recordings. 

“Let’s Do Really Strange Things And Call Them Normal” is an 
exciting piece of work that evolves with every more bit of 
listening, it is a big appetizer of contrary music for 
contrary people, Precise placements of sounds and constantly 
evolving textures ensure that this release holds quite a few 
secrets for you, even when listening to it repeatedly Normal 
Music is all about rhythms and beats, with a distinctive, 
darker edge, where rich electronic textures, surface noise 
from vinyl and various unidentifiable sources, looped or 
seemingly random, form these five tracks of blissful beats 
and minimal rhythms.
