It took a while for me to find out who this was by. The sleeve is kind of like the one for 'Zuma' by Neil Young. All black and white hand drawn squiggles, yet you have to look very hard for a title. The music contained within is kind of the aural equivalent. Lots of complex squiggly lines produced with digital and analog gear. Keith Fullerton Whitman has been doing this sort of thing for a long time now and remains an expert in his field. The press release explains the academic thinking behind the pieces which while of interest, I'm only going to judge this on the actual sounds. The first piece is kind of Philip Glass type metronomic looping giving a sheeny acidy treatment. Side B is less musical, comprising of industrial screeching, steam driven clanks and eventually a sort of low end hum which culminates in a sickening piercing shrill.
