Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-10-05
Surreal soundscapes of "electroacoustic" music. Great abstract stuff, ranges from glacial atmospheric sounds to fast, aggressive, scratch-your-eyes-out noises. Very sci-fi stuff.

1- Aggressive motorized rumble
2*- Metallic rippling sounds, almost musical in spots
4*- Sinister soundtrack music, slow
6- *FCC* "asshole" ... Jumble of voices and other sounds, sparse start/stop process
7*- Ringing and swooshing noises, wind chimes of the Future
8- Fast pulse, epilepsy inducing
9- Slow ringing
10- Crunching, like sand rubbed on a table
12- Angry loud chirps, like insane robot monkeys
13- Strangely springy groans. With tennis-match sounds. ("Out!"). Ends with dynamic and more evil noises
14- Annoying, dizzying stereo effects
15*- Loud glowing sounds in a sparse landscape

16- Small pizzacatto sounds
17*- Slow, ghostly, w/Scottish guy talking
18- Booming twangs and some cutesly squawks
19*- Echoing metallic sounds, slow
20- Atonal Casio notes over a staticky hum
21- Calming water noises, occasional accordion
22- Quiet crackling, gets briefly loud
23*- Wacky, based on found sounds from busy restaurants? Later: acoustic harplike instruments, fast and dissonant
24- Evil pulse and slow piercing wails for 3 mins., then quieter and lurking. Ends with a big evil mass.
26- Emotive poetry
27*- Serious cello, burning/crackling sounds, playful robotic twangs
28- Manipulated castanet sounds, fast and clacky
29- Mostly quiet, gets fierce for a brief time
