STAR'S END: Jason Sloan live-to-air (excerpt) 25 August 2019

Published on Aug 26, 2019 Chuck van Zyl

"Jason Sloan's secret pleasure may be of the Berlin-School variety. His clean lined minimalism delivers a potent atmosphere of mechanized machine mystery and dreaming, breathing idyll - filling the mind in four dimensions. With a powerful intellectual undercurrent coursing beneath his realizations, his music urgently pushes into darkness. Slow melodies offer vague narrative, but only its receiver knows whatever drama this work may tell. As a pulsing echoing energy occupies the center of our attention, breathing chords extend and recede, and deepen our mental journey. While a steadily turning sequencer pulse drives a linear flow, and Sloan's power of imagination takes us on unexpected excursions. From primitive utterances lost in the night, and passages of sound horde stillness, to cycling, circling tone patterns moving steadily outward - he implies formal and spatial boundlessness... resulting in an endless, formless thought zone.
