"a perfect balance between the crisp granular qualities of the constituent sounds and the seductions of rhythm".
– The Wire

"for all their dryness and austerity, mHz’s rigorous tekkers results in hypnotic patterns and dancefloor traction that should light up fans of the purest electronics".
– Boomkat


‘Function’ is an aesthetic exploration of digital audio at an elemental level: a sequence of quantized amplitude values. The entire sonic material in this series are generated through a custom-designed program that takes a mathematical function as input, and based on a set of pre-defined criteria, outputs the function as a digital waveform. Accordingly, each track in this series is named after one mathematical function, where the function itself is used as the only sound-generating engine. These raw sonic materials are then processed through a number of common audio effects, and organized and structured into a compositional form.

Following mHz’s debut full-length release ‘Form’ (Kasuga Records, 2019), ‘Function’ builds on an ongoing investigation into realization of brutalist aesthetics through sound and audiovisual media. Through a reductionist approach towards its distinctly digital sonic structures, the work embraces the crude limitations of its medium as the primary aesthetic construct. It uses mathematically architected tonal and rhythmic structures to allow for a celebratory exposure of its “anti-beautiful" raw material. In doing so, it projects an uncompromising clarity of structure, a conscious negation of interpolation, and a steadfast refusal to hide the machine’s footprint.
