RS-40 - 2008
'Off Light' is the first proper CD by Portland based musician Scott Goodwin, who also spends time crafting tones in the trio Bonus. Not a huge departure from that group's direction here, although Scott has notched the distortion all the way down and cranked the pure tones up quite a bit. Composed entirely from sine waves, 'Off Light' and its companion piece 'Arc' are thrilling shifts in variation that move at a slight and measured pace, forming soft rhythmic beats that really seem to come alive at a high dose of volume, bouncing around the room like holographic reflections. If you could imagine a soundtrack to a zoned out meditation in a James Turrell sculpture, this would be it. Edition of 300 in an eye-popping two panel folder.
