"There is a strange new electronic music about, where the musicians play no conventional instruments -- not even synthesisers or samplers. They simply set up electronic equipment to feed back on itself. Amongst the first to use this method, and perhaps the very first to work with no inputted sound at all, was David Lee Myers. The record he made under the name Arcane Device, in 1988, is a marvelous concoction of sonic vignettes, and an epic attempt to wrest vast archetypal noises from the stuff of the universe. The end result sound of this music is like a mixture of Brian Eno's ambient series, Tod Dockstader's post-cartoon soundscapes, machine sounds from an industrial dump, and more than a few wacky echoes of experimental pop musicians, from Faust to Autechre. It's incredibly varied for music that has been produced by an automated process, and Engines of Myth threatens to give electronic music a good name; it's both challenging and accessible, and has a fabulously spontaneous feel."
