Symbolic Boundary cs667









[…] And then Symbolic Boundary, the third album by Diceros (here an octet, and involving actual horns for the first time in this entry) — after Urze (mentioned here in August 2018) & 3 Phases (III) Black (mentioned in January 2019) — is once again noted as from the Small Format Materials Festival (but recorded in February 2020), bringing another generalized wave interrogation around notions of stampede. Symbolic Boundary is actually relatively approachable & easy to follow, with more (overlapping, heterophonic) melody than most of these albums, while yielding earthy colors amid a continuing timbral variety.
