But it is not a work you can readily pin down. Covering a total of approximately 33 minutes the release explores the realms of dry and unsettled techno that goes way beyond and partly even ignores the requirements of a heaving crowd as it adds layer upon layer of quirky percussions and twisted, brain-melting melodies.
Constantly shifting and in eternal flux, no two bars are entirely alike as the music builds and sounds evolve and transform. Lars injects smartly crafted sounds and computational melodies in unusual ways, as twisting micro-techno grooves trawl the brain for resonating electrons. By the end you may wonder just how you arrived at the final destination - not that it matters, as this music is just as much about the journey itself.
Lars uses the computer as his instrument exclusively, which he programs according to his needs. It is not too obvious when it comes to mathematical functions and systems why many of them just seem to work, but on Persect it is of vital importance that the system is a manageable digital organism that can be shaped and guided on the spot, as if it was a musical instrument.
Everything coming from the laptop is generated in real-time - no musical phrase, grouping or section is pre-recorded - and this allows Lars to shape, form, guide, affect and instantly create musical textures and expressions. In order to achieve this, he incorporates the most recent insight into human cognition and meaning in music and sound into his programming. This then becomes the point-of-departure for a music that is rich and intriguing yet easily appreciated by the naked, yet curious ear.
