Sharpness Of Formulation by Charles Rice Goff III & Michael LaGrega is Mmmm Mmmm, good. This music has been slow-cooked with a hearty broth the hungry listener can swim in. All kind of surprises are in this sonic minestrone: found sounds, synths, loops, voices, and more beat into improvised submission come at you like a parade. Ever changing and morphing objects form, replaced one by one with another equally wonderful spectacle. 'Annulment Of Suspension' is like a kind of harmonious noise that finds there is life after iteration. After a good dose of space mayhem on 'The Machine Economy'. The duo leave us suspended in animation with 'Amid That Which Is'. My fave on the release, 'Plasticity Nullifies Vividness' delivers an ethereal punch to the cranium. We've entered surreal space in the closing tracks. Crossing a star field of blinking eye-balls on 'Analysis Of Being-In' and finally. The encounter with intelligent life as we are guided through 'The Manual Doorlock Buttons Of Perception' to find we have become one of the ingredients in this tasty sonic stew.
