PAS are a quartet
of exploratory musicians whose aim is to make musical collages from a wide variety
of sources: instruments, found sounds, natural recordings. The music is amorphous,
ever-changing, occasionally offputting, sometimes glorious. As the band themselves
admit, the music here is more by way of soundscape than song, and this is certainly
true of the opening three cuts.'Volker Goes To Spain' however achieves a notable
impact through its choice of synth sounds and natural recordings - dark and eerie
in the extreme - while 'Vacationing Beat' brings crickets to an otherworldly drone
and some very glitchy beats. I also liked 'Sonic Sleighride Through Coalmines' which
is perhaps the track on the album that most conjures up definite mental images;
a kind of gothic railway ride underground. 'The Dramatic Exit' concludes events
with piano, synths and mysterious background sounds. As with all music like this,
the key question is, has the band achieved an original sound through its constituent
parts? PAS certainly have, and there are more hits than misses on this menagerie
of electro-acoustic trips.
