    NIGHT SCIENCE is Ben Neill's first album in seven years. Much has changed in the electronic music scene, and the sonic narrative here indicates that the experimental trumpeter is right on top of it. For example, this set grows out of Neill's current fascination with dubstep and grime, two forms that emerged from the U.K. during the middle part of this decade. In addition, Neill gets the essential quality of dubstep: its dark-edged, even sinister sound. Check out "Menace Ultimo," with the forceful bassline, layers of ambient sound, and an overload of wow and flutter before the drums even enter. The melodic component running through these dark, heavily rhythmic tracks and textured atmospheres is, of course, Neill's signature distorted trumpet sound, flitting through the mix at its fringes. NIGHT SCIENCE is as nocturnal as its title, but this isn't background music--it's forward-sounding and wildly beat-conscious, a creation that looks at rhythm, jazz, African funk, grime, and dubstep with fresh ears and a bold compositional sensibility.
