Architectronics a collaboration between Kodwo Eshun (The Wire/i-D) and Franz Pomassl (Sabotage/Laton), executed at the construction site of the Vienna Museum Quarter, performed right in the 60-foot deep pit, site of the future Museum of Modern Art and recorded live at the AR-60-Studio (ORF/FM4)/Vienna. Architectronics is the first time that Kodwo Eshun has transformed his theories on music, architecture and 'sonic fiction' into a performance. "Subtitled 'Black Atlantic Turns on Flow Line', a 1998 collaboration between the mind/throat of music-post-Neubauten-theorist/author/scribe 'du-jour' Eshun and Austrian abstract electronic genius Pomassl (his Trail Error on Laton took easily the finest direction in contemporary 'sound research' last year) executed at the construction site of the Vienna Museum Quarter. Originally perceived as 'dodgy' but actually rather effective through it's use of extensive audio signal DSP to render said vocal ruminations and related sibilance completely and totally unintelligible, thus saving us from any belated pop-culture pretension (judging by included prose, the casualty rate could have been rather high). What computer music SHOULD have graduated to a long time ago; a series of intriguing, often unbelievable sounds conceptually linked to individual acoustic audio-production engine components (lips/lungs/tongue). Stellar." -- Hrvatski.
