‘FULLSCREEN’ by FAUSTO MERCIER is, as the title hints at, a deeply immersive and undeniably full spectrum endeavor. With relentless showerings of razor-sharp kicks, precision-timed laser pulses and rubbery squeals, the overall construction is in the first place liquid, with individual sound objects having a flexible, plastic quality to them. Sprinkled with stammering synth stabs, these tracks distill something infectiously clubby out of a boiling stew of high impact smeared bass hits, zooming metallic clangs and THX®-reminiscent sonorous light beams. Juicy, bubbling percussion on one hand confirms the radical malleability both grid and frame but paradoxically also leads to a heightened perception of a precision in arrangement, no doubt further cemented by the ultra HD sound design approach sustained throughout.
Finally, the album is interspersed with a collection of spicy re-imaginings by Genot Centre associates, featuring a stroboscopic slicing masterclass by Forces, a no holds barred club killer by Ice_eyes and a full-range scanned mortal dissection by r hunter.
The above video was created by RealityCongress and we feel the visuals perfectly pair up against the thoughts and processes of the overall ‘FULLSCREEN’ project.
