Originally released in 1994, the Mass Observation LP was Robin Rimbaud's groundbreaking record as Scanner. Part of a wider interest and study in surveillance -- very relevant in today's climate, with a society obsessed with virtual media, Big Brother and Love Island -- this previously unreleased and expanded edition includes longer, uncut mixes laid down onto DAT, live at the time. Beatless sounds -- radio communications disembodied and disconnected from personal context, mixed with dial tone pulses and abstract textures -- captured moments in time using scanners. Found sound and spoken word would continue to be introduced in much experimental music made by many artists that were to follow. CD on Room40.
