Inspection II

Editions Mego bring you another round of high-concept computer music from sonic metaphysician Florian Hecker. If I understand correctly, this one takes a (synthetically recited) text and continually resynthesises it based on algorithms modelling human hearing. The result is a model subverted by extremity - masochism, in other words. It sounds like the world’s unhappiest dialup modem.

A Script For Machine Synthesis

A mainstay at the Mego label, and moving with them onto Editions Mego artist Hecker tests philosophy with sound art. Working with philosopher Reza Negarestani Hecker brings the third part of his text-sound works in A Script For Machine Synthesis. No real voices used, all words are synthesised and computer generated, with the script guiding you through as alterations are made. Stick this one on at a party, I dare you.
