This is Vienna-based sound artist Florian Hecker's first full-length release on the Rephlex label. Hecker has been working with computer music, independently and in collaboration with other artists such as: Farmers Manual, Russell Haswell, Shunichiro Okada, Peter Rehberg, Marcus Schmickler and Yasunao Tone since 1996. Hecker's works emphasize the connection of the most recent as well as the most historic developments in computer music, hard- and software. Often working closely together with software engineers and scientists, his recent productions incorporate psycho-acoustic effects disorientating the listener's spatial perception in live presentations and studio works. He has been working on sound pieces commissioned by visual artists Angela Bulloch, Carsten Höller, Florian Pumhösl and Cerith Wyn Evans. Together with Russell Haswell, he is currently working on a compact disc with material recorded early 2004 during their research with the UPIC system at the Centre for Composition of Music Iannis Xenakis (CCMIX) in Paris. The eight pieces on Recordings for Rephlex were completed between 2002 and 2004. Although individual pieces have been produced for different occasions, all the recordings share concepts of sound generation on various time scales, down to the smallest sound particles. Superimpositions of multiple audio layers were not applied.
