2 Track 12inch
"File under: Acid, Computer Music. 3 audio tracks and 6 locked grooves, 45rpm. Obscure, frenzied zigzag rhombus. Angular audio designed to dismantle perception. Florian Hecker (b. 1975 .DE) is an artist in the fields of computer music. He started making music with computers in 1996. Ever since, he has researched on mobile performance tools taking part in the first wave of Mego related concerts in 1996. This latest 2 track 12" is a fine example of just how far extreme audio has come -- electroacoustic whiplash courtesy of hypertense audio angles and intense digital disorientation. 'Pandämonium 9 Playlist' rides a manic curve with jagged edges, abrupt swoops, metallic bites and wild bass bombs -- an all out war on the senses which leaves the listener simultaneously baffled + energised. 'Stocha Acid Vlook' hijacks the senses in a torrential digital storm. A macabre buzzing drills it's way through sweeping hiss and wailing sheets of sound propel the listener through a violent and furious lysergic 4 mins 30 secs. The bubblegum patch fantasy is dead. This is computer music with attitude. It is not your run of the mill kid with software exercise in audio angst but a whole hearted love affair of the medium in a classical sense and some solid evidence as to where it can be taken in the future, which is right here and now. Lusus naturae -- an unnatural production. An end to audio -- digital decay as ecstatic vision."
