“[Human]” is the first cd of Lyon-based sound designer and musician Hol Baumann, aka Olivier Orand.
To me, Baumann’s peculiar form of down-tempo music is rather different from the usual stuff that I know from this established French label.
Most of the music is not that laidback as one might expect, although a piece like “We are analog” creates a relaxed, immersive sonic realm. In addition, the final track “A forgotten ritual” is a strong down-tempo ending of this album as well.
I think this release will be appreciated by those who have an adventurous ear and an open view towards this genre of electronic music.
