Brussels-based sound designer Yann Leguay has spent much of his career creating experimental electronic pieces that challenge people's perceptions. Whether or not Headcrash, his first release on the admirable Vlek label, achieves this admirable aim is debatable. It is, though, a rather mesmerizing and mind-altering record (and we're not just talking about the distinctive, handmade sleeve art). Near 15-minute A-side "IRQL Not Less Or Equal" sets the tone via slowly shifting drone textures, heartbeat style percussion hits, effected analogue electronics, modular noises, and a smattering of atmospheric field recordings. "Uncaught TypeError", a more cluttered affair that combines droning textures and creepy notes with densely layered, almost rhythmic cracks and pops, completes a deliciously out-there and evocative package.
