about

"Thoughts on Manifolds is an album of impossible shapes, anomalous physics and quite unusual calibre." (Electronic Sound)

"An audible statement of an otherworldly architecture - a mind's outlook into one of many futures shaped by Blank Wall Season." (zenevloed)

"Microscopic ecosystems living their own captivatingly tactile lives" (AlterEcho)

THOUGHTS ON MANIFOLDS (GEN050) by BLANK WALL SEASON is a feather light, mixed-material showroom of synthetic objects, constantly rolling, constricting, zooming, bubbling, evoking some vast space. Impossibly thin, transparent foil, crisp, ice cold fluids, metal on rubber impacts etching elaborate diagrams and schemes into ambiguous, lush techno-reminiscent chords. The sound arrangement here is akin to a granular breeze, like an alien meteorology, a particle simulation turning into a textural primordial soup. Constantly in acceleration or deceleration, the listener knows every vast saturated pad is seconds away from the rush of a blast-off, almost intolerable G-forces, images flashing in front of one's eyes, bullet-like hard pans. These operations are like a valve being turned, the sudden pressure release causing a stream of some noble gas being set free, or opening a shutter suddenly providing a flicker of light highlighting the contours of some cavernous lost zone.

// About GEN050
/ Blank Wall Season about the album
“Another foggy night, as you step out from the exit of a club, every 'feeling' you had is overlapped with sweat and you are stuck with emotions”
In the album, we hear one sample altering and folding into a wide spectrum of sonic reflections while hazy textures intersect with each other to create a crafted assemblage. Amongst this heap of sounds, you'll find some that you can't get through and realize that they are the ones that matter as it's all a journey within manifolds.
