Sylnox VSnares is one the most brilliant composers and sound designers of the modern era and I refuse to hear otherwise.

leonardmreidy I love it because of all the bits about cats. Favorite track: Ion Divvy.

phntmsmshr The restless soul of the machine in painfully high resolution and palpable textured detail. A good player and decent earphones and this album will take you to dark and complex places where digital sounds go to die. Favorite track: Keek.

takato14 Somber, meticulous, horrifying and mesmerizing. This album is something completely unique and special. Easily, truly a magnum opus.

Michał Bajorek The essence of electronic music. If the robots listened to music, it would sound exactly like that. Favorite track: Chlorophyll.

ctdelgado I haven't been this excited by a new electronic music discovery since turning on to Coil back in '91. Listening to this with eyes closed was a great experience, like Milkdrop for the mind's eye. Towering metallic structures build upon each other connected by delicate latticework and brimming with power. It can be stark and sinister at times, but has a lot of humor within as well. Simply gorgeous and inspiring. Favorite track: Bonivital.

about

Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding is all fizzing, hyperspeed percussion moving over and under one-finger toystore melodies, stop/start rhythms, sudden switchbacks and shifting layers of musical/percussive activity. Every sound appears to contain a toxic quota of synthetic additives, frequently to the exclusion of anything else.

Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding inhabits an entirely synthetic world, one that’s made of numbered polymers rather than atoms. Despite the titles, this music isn’t allusive: it is self-contained, seemingly self-perpetuating like a series of virtual mechanisms, elegant sci-fi constructions, the musical envisioning of shifting nano-technological gears. There’s something mad-scientist/hare-brained baroque about it.

Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding is a hypertrophied soundgarden overgrown with dayglo plastic plants twitching towards miscellaneous light sources in photosynthetic spasm, their roots a writhing and constantly reconfiguring chaos. Its title is reminiscent of Duchamp’s Nude Descending A Staircase.
