"This recording has been waiting in the archives for its release since it was performed and recorded during the month-long Echtzeitmusiktage in Berlin. It sums up the whole decade of Perlonex’ previous music making, but at the same time marks a turning point for the group. Due to external individual obligations and other personal reasons Perlonex took a longer concert break after this event up until 2013. In 2014 the group started rehearsing and playing live again, performing a series of concerts in Berlin and Sweden. The music of Perlonex became more colorful and musique concrete-like, not at least due to Ignaz Schick’s return to vinyl manipulation. The concert you can hear on Perlonoid was one of the last concerts of the band where he uses his object-based rotating surfaces set-up.
Perlonoid is rather monochrome, drony, and slow-paced. It is stunning how the music repeatedly gravitates towards its ever-emerging tonal centers. The intensity builds up sheer endlessly and finally explodes at its peaks. An exceptionally powerful sound system, the nice conditions of a large good sounding space and an enthusiastic Berlin festival audience stimulated the trio to build a piece which is both detailed and intense at the same time. Perlonex clearly pushes their long-established maximal-minimalistic material to its formal and physical limits.
Perlonoid makes the 7th release of the band Perlonex and will be followed in 2017 by more archive recordings – including recordings with guest performer Mike Cooper – as well as releases of new material. Also in 2017 the group will intensify its concert activity. – But until then, lean back and enjoy the wonderful soundscapes of Perlonoid!"
