Dyskhord Live: Volume One is over 3 HOURS of live electronics. For anyone who's ever banged on a synthesizer or wailed into a distortion driven microphone this album will resonate with familiar tones and feelings. Sliced and stretched into a pleasing waveform, each track is a mashup of the best moments from the jam sessions that take place here in the studio.
Ambient drones, grain shifted segues, soaring cascades of strings, melancholy piano arpeggios, and hand crafted beats created on the fly. This is me playing with my toys, recording every moment, and bringing my best to you!

I had no doubt about the origin of Dyskhord, but I checked the confirmation that he was the son of Uncle Sam was a gamble, and his music is typically 'open', totally, a characteristic of laptoppers overseas, prone to innovation, experimentation without ever losing sight of the dimension 'clubbers' of the sound.
In this double album also elegant in form (the substance will discover soon ...): the choice falls on the classic jewel-case six panels containing the original artwork of the artist, a package that rewards the artistic and industrial importance.
The music is the opening of a Pandora's box in the conceptual whole of the electronic device has its references: industrial or environmental intelligence, no trace is repeated, every change in the wake of a new experience as such a genius that assembles great songs interspersed with some unnecessary moments, maybe not for his conceptual and twenty-six traces unpredictability is the only rule, therefore, no pre-Directive.
So imagine the twenty-six tracks as twenty-six days (a metaphor fits perfectly), then no day is like another, and no day sometimes remains constant from beginning to end, immersing yourself in a series of bursts of sound that enhances every possible mood, both radiant or gloomy, oscillating or brittle, neurotic or apathetic: "The Harmony" is this, the title is clear. Harmony is the set of all of us inner balance, harmony is all part of the sound, balance, composition, harmony is all that expresses Dyskhord to make pleasant work long giving the correct alternation of original tracks, collaborations and remixes, avoiding the original disk and the speculum remixes, omogenealizzandola ...
Thus begins the long march of twenty-choreographed tracks: "The Harmony" with the participation of Born Of Fire and Lithia provides synth, drum and bass-line in a state of alert, an explosive mixture in crescendo to a synth-pop dance retrievable in tracklist after, beautiful (too bad the short track) nell'accenno harsh of "uncircumcised Heart" is nuanced and place it in the scene with arrogance harsh class, yet aggressive in Fearpassage remix of the song "At The End Of The Day ", growl overbearing and cruel dark lines that do not discount anyone, similar perceptions in the same passage in the industrial aggression Message To The Machine, enriched and rhythmic noise phobic scent of power in industrial-style Terminal Choice and the like .
Body-in powerful dance remix of the song Nightmare Of Cain "Like Forever", built on massive synth beat and dancy, open, a piece hype magnet for the dancefloor, before "Ribbon" laptop combined with those of Lucidstatic and item offered by Kimberly Kornmeier, yet energy clubbers here twilight, by implication techno-wave, still a very nice song, ingenious in finding the balance between states of chaos and wanted to run.
"The Harmony" also has a face IDM: the school where he grew Dyskhord is eclectic and Intelligence explodes in breakcore "Run", along with Glue On Smile, an aggressive and abrasive dust for all that noise can be , sounds almost heart instead for the same song 'extruded' from Aestethische, stop / reprise high voltage sounds committed architectures neurotic and cerebrotiche.
The finish is soft: after twenty-five track remix of "Remember Her" sees Pyskkle committed to the piano, even the drum-line asks softness germinates then a drum'n'bass in slow-motion, a film that slowly puts the word end to the double album, insights that during the hearing were placed as interludes of a complex work that takes place between cycles and peaks, valleys of sound, precipices and purple skies, good understanding between Dyskhord, CRL Studio, and all Lucidstatic alias James Church, the coach ...
