Melbourne-based electroacoustic improv duo Anthony Pateras & Robin Fox return with their second release for the Editions Mego label. This is a shredding album filled with Antipodean-blasted bliss that will get even the darkest of doomlords crawling out of their abyss of hatred and dancing like lunatics. End of Daze is a bulletproof testament to the duo's eight year history in the trenches of live electroacoustic music -- their messy, over-the top contact-miked beginnings now formed into a powerful and futuristic meta-language borrowing from the early electronic masters, with bizarre sound poetry, vintage synth festishism, the eternal patch tweak and good old fashioned Melbourne experimentalist brutality fueled by a poisonous love affair with sonic invention. A combination of materials forged live on stage alongside carefully considered studio mayhem, the audio contained on this disc is their finest vein-popping blend of chaos and order to date. Recorded beautifully by longtime engineer James "Wilkinsound" Wilkinson in Melbourne, combined with some sessions from WORM in Rotterdam, End of Daze promises a sonic range as wide as its genesis, complete with angry-boy artwork courtesy of Clare Cooper. Limited to 500 copies. Robin Fox: computer, controllers, ARP 2500, and programming. Anthony Pateras: computer, Doepfer A-100, voice, and Revox B-77.
