"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Belgrade Farfisa

If the official 'retired Serbian steelworker turned self-taught electronic musician' line around Abul Mogard is in any way true, his is an extraordinary trajectory. But even if - as seems likely - it's just a confection to make 'his' music stand out from others', what really differentiates this work (a handful of tapes, remixes & a recent-ish compilation on Ecstatic) is its poise & - sorry - grandeur. 

It's been a year since the last original (ahem...) Mogard release, Circular Forms. These ears are primed for more of these affecting, swelling textures - their emotional heft belied by the banality of their self-description as "made using Farfisa organ, synthesisers and computer software"
