Bristol resident Sophia Loizou makes her debut appearance here for Astro:Dynamics, presenting an immersive exploration of sound design that teeters between tense moments of restraint and shocking blasts of guttural noise. "Uranium" sets the tone perfectly with its slow-release lead-in of mournful tones and a crushing finale of monolithic bass destruction. You're never far from some creative distortion here, through the fiery drones of "Archaea" and the scratchy space-transmission balladry of "Baptisia" to the thrumming factory processes at work in "Demansia", but through it all the grand scope of sound sources is what makes Chysalis such a gripping listen, sharing good company with the likes of Roly Porter in the cavernous halls of West Country noiseniks.
