Modell, Rod

In the year 2000, Rod joined forces with Mike Schommer and started the minimal techno label Deepchord.  Quickly becoming a cult favorite, the Deepchord vinyl-only releases sold out worldwide necessitating the need to release a CD compilation in 2001.  Reminiscent of Basic Channel, and hailing from Detroit, this is techno at it’s best.

Rod Modell + Michael Mantra - Sonic Continuum

Artist: Rod Modell & Michael Mantra
P:
1997
Rod Modell and Michael Mantra's first collaboration is also the first release by either artist on Hypnos Recordings. Comprised of two 35-minute pieces, Sonic Continuum works best at low volume, especially when played while sleeping or relaxing. These long, slow-moving pieces work their way into the background of your awareness, and create a shift in your sense of where -- and when -- you're listening. Imagine it's 4 a.m., and you are sitting alone under a pier at a beach. Sounds of voices float down from above you, and crashing waves form a background in the darkness. Though there is little you can see around you, the sounds give you a sense of your surroundings. The voices murmur quietly, and you feel pleasantly alone, secure in a private place. The binaural "brain tuning" techniques employed in this recording induce a strange, but calming psychological effect... sort of relaxing, but also sort of mind-bending.

V/A - Weightless, Effortless

Artist: V/A
P: 1999
Here's another excellent ambient anthology for those into the darker end of the genre. Featuring nine artists, the sampler takes from both new and veteran musicians, to deliver up a diverse yet flowing 74 minute CD. Kevin Keller opens the disc with samples of voices whispering. From it he creates a slow 12 minute warm drift similar to musicians like Robert Scott Thompson. Illinois synthesist James Johnson's Closure is at least half as long as Keller's track, yet the style is very similar, with muted and shifting chords gently floating on the air, melodic and peace-inducing. Dean DeBenedictis takes a much different approach, far more abstract and surreal, although there is a similar underlying melodic pattern underneath the Schnitzler like rattling and scuttling. As the tracks progresses along its eight minute length, it grows more fascinating with treated water sounds and voices. It is over far too soon. Ma Ja Le return the focus to melody, and the nine minutes Images Remain is full of crystal, ethereal chords floating up, a far different sound than their CD with Vir Unis. A piece one can lose themself in, with longing and melancholy, this would have fit perfectly on The Ambient Expanse. Rod Modell's Ipperwash Twilight leaps out of the speakers with incredible sonic clarity, and you immediately know you're in the presence of a creative force. Strange, but slightly melodic synths with a wide array of tones and field recordings spread sheets of sound over percolating sequencers, and the strange scaling and effects, successfully create an incredibly alien landscape. This is visionary music, alone worth the price of this disc. Dave Fulton's piece is also odd, with steely sequencer and loads of metallic industrial sounds that starts at a low volume that increases over most the track's length. It's dissonant melody provides sort of a lull in the overall CD flow, and sets up veteran Loren Nerell's Liquid Metal Stasis, an intense drone with microtonal bell sounds, volcanic bubbling, and other rich and colorful tonal shading. We definitely can never hear enough from Nerell. Scott Fraser's Straight Lines is another drone where the subtlety hinges on the changes of tones of the synthesizers. At eight minutes, it progresses through number of colorings, remaining surprisingly dynamic. As he often does, Steve Roach closes the set, his contribution the 7 1/2 minute Bottomless, and here we see the least urban track on the anthology evoking the wide expanses and chthonic depths of consciousness. A more chilly track than Roach usually produces, but no less evocative for it. A strong anthology, and one of the more impressive of the type in recent memory."
