The last part of a grooves series dedicated to representatives of the Algorave movement features a debut sound artist from Japan – okachiho.
groove 12.1 begins with finely cropped and ripped samples, whose apparent randomness begins to form an ever-accelerating mechanism. Some of the producer's sound palette resembles the Tilman Ehrhorn’s recordings from the "Task" album released by Mille Plateaux. okachiho tastefully oscillates between the dynamics of individual elements of the composition and deliberately introduced silence. A perfect example of this is groove 12.2, starting with a compressed and nervous pulse that gradually breaks down into atomized components shattered by intervals – a mixture of punk energy with post-Cage strategies.
Algorave grooves 10th and 11th by Kindohm and Renick Bell tried to redefine such music genres as footwork, jungle, and drum & bass. okachiho took a different path in groove 12 by sticking to the tempo of 160 bpm and coding her own sound world.
The graphic design of the Algorave series by Iwona Jarosz evokes the works of the 20th-century Wrocław visual artist Wacław Szpakowski. His "rhythmic lines" and "broken lines", their dynamics, rhythmization, interpenetration of simplicity and complexity can be an extremely interesting reference point for the practices of the (visual and sound) creators of Algorave.
