4 stars Pinhas' usual signature in electronic, textural drone-spheres. All the variations are taken from the same thematic that can be sum up in a few words: timeless repetition and superposition of events. For this conceptual album Pinhas explores the new synth materials, technologies. It offers a very clean, "cold" atmosphere to the composition, rather near to Kraftwerk's sound during their golden era, however the music is different in style. The gradual, repetitive process used in Variation V indicates a similar approach to T.D's sequencer ostinato. Fripp's guitar influence is gone in favor of short "hypnotic" electronic collages. . I like the structure of theses variations, culminating into mysterious soundscapes. Mostly spacey-type, the electronic "loops" are not really various but efficient and truly magnetic. This musical leading line is developed until "Paul Atreiches" which clearly announces a return to Heldon's tradition, icluding rising molecular "cosmic" / fractal noises and chaotic guitar passages. psychologically fascinating and plenty of neurotic-static-nervous sound motives. Among Pinhas most consistent albums in solo.
