'Perceiver' is Peter Van Hoesen's second full length album following 2010's 'Entropic City'. It provides more evidence of Van Hoesen's continual experiments into sound. The textural, shifting and dynamic synth elements, hooks and arpeggios that characterise the album's voice often reach into abstract zones, but never too far that the listener cannot easily delve into the hypnotism of the moment. Gently rhythmic pieces such as the album's opening voyage, 'Objects From The Past', or the reduced modular electronics of 'Spectral Participant' plant the tone of the earlier tracks firmly in the high-tech, experimental realms of modern electronica. It is clear that intricacy and diversity are high on Van Hoesen's sonic agenda. The album ascends patiently from serene and perplexing sound pieces into fierce club-ready movements. In the later half of the LP the emphasis is clearly on headstrong body shocks designed for cavernous off-world clubs - the biting snarl of 'Decoder' - or futuristic festival settings with the entrancing arpeggios of 'Inspection In Solitude'. Throughout we are ushered on with the rewarding feeling of movement. Elements modulate, build and eventually recede (see the two-tiered 'Attribute 39'). 'Perceiver' offers an organic, flowing and modern take on techno - vitally alive, pulling us away from genre boundaries and more into the adventurous realms of electronic music....
