Ujif_notfound is a project from Ukraine, released on the 4th of April by the experimental music label Kvitnu. Already sold out, the album was released on a limited edition of 50 SD cards. Dealing with heavily processed sounds, "Process" is one of the most interesting IDM projects of 2019. With 42 tracks and over 5 hours of sound, this release can hardly be labeled as an LP. Divided into seven chapters, the music evolves from ambient to a more aggressive one, keeping a good balance for the entire sonic experience.
The artist likes to think outside the box, so he didn't use plugins that are already available. Specially for this release he created a patch based on Max for Live - the plugin was given for free to those who purchased the album on a SD card. I had the opportunity to play around a bit with his MAX plug-in and I must say that the results are impressive: you won't generate the same sound twice. This reminded me of Zavoloka's experimental opus "Nature never produces the same sound twice". Even if there are no "real" sounds in "Process" the final output is sometimes organic, as you will find in "CATHARSIS clarification", but mostly IDM, in the style of Autechre or Drexcya. It's not a music designed to be danced on but rather sounds created for introspection. The trip is guaranteed to give you eargasms and braingasms, as every element is precisely placed.
Ujif_notfound describes "Process" as an anthology of generative psychedelic music. He plays a lot with glitches and audio bits that may seem out of order but that's just until he reaches the perfect tempo, without using kicks or other tempo-driven elements. Although the majority of the tracks are sonically synthetic, if you listen carefully you will discover field-recordings and other bits of sounds recorded from nature.
