With its streams of tone possessed of a slippery physicality, "0001 capillary," the first song on Formant's Amino, is reminiscent of the recent work of German electronic artist Pole.

Elsewhere, "0011 trens_ciphe r" inches along with bass pulses and processed percussion, like the soundtrack to an urban science-fiction film made by Jim Jarmusch, while the sweeps and swells of tone and brushes of texture that festoon the ultra-minimal but evolving rhythm track of "0100 amino" should appeal to fans of Autechre and Oneohtrix Point Never. Though clearly electronically generated, there is a soothingly organic feel to these songs that makes them endlessly listenable.
