Neu Gestalt – Controlled Substances

Neu Gestalt is the alias of Edinburgh-based electronic musician Les Scott, whose fourth album Controlled Substances was created using a deliberately pared-back set of tools: a violin, a guitar, a modular system for processing source material, Akai samplers and an Atari computer from the late 80s to bring it all together.

A kind review of ‘Controlled Substances’ by Jonathan Muirhead is on ‘Is This Music’.

Album review: Neu Gestalt – Controlled Substances – is this music?

This album is a soundscape rather than an album. It starts off small and delicate and quiet and it ends up a quiet and subtly impressive and immersive giant within your head. ‘Machines Of Grace’ is the perfect starter, all bleeps, blips and blobs, underlined and subtly carried by deep dark keyboard and synth bass …

The music of ‘Controlled Substances’ lies somewhere between illbient and electronically-treated chamber music. Beatless, reflective, soundscape pieces are interspersed to provide a little light and shade and breath more space into the album as a whole.
