FELICITA – La Merle Noir (Glasgow 2014) 11th March, 2014

Once again demonstrating a bewildering, constantly shifting sonic sensibility Dominic Dvorak aka FELICITA’s compacted c&p selections continue his production of sound works that consistently subordinate expectation. In a lineage of work for Lucky PDF, DiS Magazine and his own club projects and releases, La Merle Noir (Glasgow 2014) more than any of the others has very few constants or parameters. The only recurring element is an abstraction of a piano line by 20th century French composer Olivier Messiaen that at one point is interjected by a My Little Pony remix. It’s glitchy and confounding, collapsing all notions of taste in some kind of post-consumerist euphoria.
