Album Review

Reviewed 2007-05-05 
Electronic sounds/noise. Much/all? of this is done via mathematical algorithms...not just determining when and which note are played, but controlling the sound profiles. Instrumental. FCC clean. Picks 1,4,5.

*1-(6:26) Starts with gentle tone, but shrill, abrasive modem/computer noises warbling along for most of track. Ends fairly sparse.
2-(3:46) Like a conversation between two zippers, or rubbing your fingernail along the ridges of a jewel case, amplified loudly. Last minute pretty muted.
3-(4:17) Fast clicking which VERY SLOWLY changes its emphasis (in a very academic/classical way).
*4-(5:39) Fair bit of variation on this one. At times the sound of two lawn mowers buzzing in and out of tune. Buzzing, warbling. Ends abrupt.
*5-(5:02) Very full static sound, like being next to a waterfall. Subtle changes in the background motor noise. -1:35 notes become prominent. Abrupt end.
6-(0:55) A vocal sample severely distorted/ mutated/looped? Tone morphs into more of a buzz.
7-(12:21) Electronic flutters/scrambles. Epic in length, but by no means one cohesive piece. Different sounds come and go. A difficult listen for that reason.
8-(2:55) High, shrill bell tones.
