Early Bells + Voices
"Timely LP of post-UVS/pre-Kyrie Eleison recordings (1996-1997) from our man in New York, Kurt Ralske, resident heir to live systems/computer-music myth (sticker, visible on the back of the laptop during concerts, reads: 'Actual Live Performance'), now dev-titan for the NATO video processing environ (but not party to its integer-poetry spouting progenitor, lest rumours lie). Nasty comparisons to Oval made in recent years (attributed to the rise of 2nd/3rd gen 'glitch' artists with which to be lumped) can be traced to far later sound-sets than these, more concerned with the hushed cathedral ambiance/ghost voices of yonder (as in Medieval yonder) than anything remotely plunderphonic. A gorgeous statement; one of the more perfect Sunday comedowns (in lieu of worship proper) in an impossibly purple sleeve. Great." -- Hrvatski.
