I'm no academic & I know little about music-making technology. I can only inform you of what I think i'm hearing. The first few tracks here conjure up, variously, an abstract cyber-conversation fizzes & rattles impatiently before finding its true rhythmical harmony within the framework of some dark ambience & fluctuating tonal exploration. A typewriter is kamikaze attacked by a load of spooky digital bees whilst someone plays some woozy wah-wah licks through a transistor radio. An abandoned space shuttle begins constructing its own DIY techno out of loneliness & boredom. Tiny metallic insect children skip on their way to school through a field a-buzz with brightly coloured digitized squeaky toys. Sound art, it's such a doss ain't it? The things a machine can do.....until you realise the relative limitations of artificial & processed sound when the cool, rolling jazzy drums & low-down double bass of Colonic People hit - then you're transported somewhere more thought provoking & organic. This track manages to maintain a cool funky feel whilst these fairly harsh, harrowing & neo-industrial ambient waves of sound assault the percussive mainframe. This track is totally great & pretty original. I cannnot be bothered with writing any more ham-fisted analogies about the diverse range of adventurous sound processing & curious drone elements/voice manipulation/tonal experimentation on this first volume of early works.
