      With each release, Arc (the British duo of Mark Shreeve and Ian
      Boddy) ventures out across new sonic territory. The CD
      FRACTURE (53'34") exists at the intersection of their previous
      works (the space-rock based) "Blaze" and (cosmic-influenced)
      "Arcturus". The title may be referring to the odd arithmetic that
      yields the engaging sequencer rhythms found on FRACTURE.
      The patterns roll and crest dramatically as Boddy and Shreeve
      follow the beat's story. Lyrical melodies lend a sense of dramatic
      narrative while chilled synth pads pull the mood into dark areas.
      The first four of the five tracks build amazingly from spare
      beginnings. On top of a halting, mechanistic pattern grows
      layers of synchronized arpeggios that switch direction and colour
      in breathtaking dexterity. The closing piece is a sprawling
      realization that extends into a cool textural and atmospheric
      realm - an excellent ending, one shrouded in fine cosmic dust.
      Continually finding new meaning in the Spacemusic style, Arc
      has produced yet another unexpectedly perfect album.

      FRACTURE by British electronic music duo Arc
