Jannick Schou – Act of Shimmering

If you think, upon reading the title of Jannick Schou’s brand new release on Experimedia, that Schou will spend his forty-minutes of wax performing the type of beautiful, precious, ambient music for which the term “shimmering” is usually reserved, you best think again. Act of Shimmering is, without a doubt, a beautiful record but the sounds here are wickedly dense. Combing layers of harsh, buzzing guitar drone with otherworldly tape loops and passages of noise, Schou creates a dark and visceral reality. Throughout both sides of this fantastic LP, Schou finds catharsis in this heaviness, and he has created an album that allows listeners to find comfort in a world of chaos.
