Duizend is a solo project of multi-faced artist Gijs Deddens, from Groningen, NL. As a prominent member of the Owsum and E=OH collectives he is known as a laptop artist, dj and painter. He also runs the fittingly named CD-R label Lekker Kut Platenmaatschappij. With a lot of projects out of that “scene” focussing on oddball amateurism, punk (mentality), high brow irony and irritating the hell out of people, this CD-r is a lot more soothing then you might expect, with seven “selected ambient tracks” that never stay on one spot for too long. The titles of the short pieces still give away his love for tongue in cheek absurdism, but the music is irony free, almost naive. Moving from semi-classical panflute meanderings of the openingtrack to new kosmic synth, to 8-bit figures in white noise, to underwater tape collage. The last tracks are slightly darker with ring-modulated ambient, alienating high pulses of synth, and the cyborg mystery on the closing track.
