Slow Attack Ensemble - [excerpt]

Given the internal and external pressures that come to bear, it's no surprise that no DIY space lasts forever. It still made it a sad occasion to learn that Ratio was winding down its active presence, news leavened slightly with the corresponding announcement of a series of farewell shows, with many artists making a final return to the space. I had seen Chuck Blazevic performing as half of dreamscape duo You'll Never Get to Heaven, but this solo project softened his sound even more. A careful mix of gliss-y guit and float-y keyb in hazy, layered loops and quicker-decaying echoed lines, this was delicate and beautiful stuff that formed itself into a true virtual ensemble from a single player's fingers.
