Electronic artist Gábor Lázár’s Boundary Object is a collection of eight real-time recorded, unedited tracks made in Budapest and Prague between 2020 and 2022 using a self-designed compositional interface. The title comes from the idea of a 'boundary object' as a flexible concept of sociology and computation of how collaborations could happen between groups of people who have different kinds of backgrounds and different levels of knowledge.
On Boundary Object, the shiny surfaces and uniformity of 2020's Source have collapsed inward, leaving intact the recognisable pulse and frames of his music. While each individual track has a non-linear structure, the album as a whole has a strong narrative. Passages that start out trance-like and familiar warp and weft into different shapes as if Lázár is examining the music like a 3D object, pulling at the edges, breaking and rebuilding what he examines, turning expectations inside-out. Boundary Object is intense, full-spectrum and a lot of fun.
