AUDIO: Normal Rituals – “Another Center”
Improvisational noise duo Normal Rituals are out with a new EP on Absurd Expedition. It’s four tracks crafted out of what feels right in the moment between sonic experimenters Peter J. Woods and Eli Smith. While the sounds here are mostly made with electronics and guitars, there’s what sounds like mouth noises opening the third track – boundary-pushing indeed. Everything ascends and falls with just the right amount of time as each decision made is a precise and intentional one. It’s a wondrously abstract exhibition from Normal Rituals, a duo of two truly fascinating sound artists.
