Ian Martin is an artist and DJ based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. This album has undoubtedly Ian's blueprint sound, but it is one in evolution.Whereas previous releases had a more fluid and languid feel, Ian is increasingly adopting a more musique concrete approach to his work. Using elements and sounds from his everyday life, Ian manipulates these to create both melody and, occasionally, a bass line. Moreover, songs like 'Love Or Art' or 'Medusa' contain touches of playfulness without losing mystique or underlying tension."Notations of the Form" draws you into a world of contrasts; dreamy landscapes and beauty on the one side, paranoïa and menace on the other.To be fully appreciated, the record needs and deserves to be listened to in its entirety.
