Galerie Neu presents Florian Hecker's NEU CD. In apparent contrast to Acid In The Style Of David Tudor (EMEGO 094CD), this CD features three computer-generated pieces which were produced in close relation to Hecker's first exhibition at Gallery Neu in 2007 as well as a contribution for the exhibition Off The Record/SOUND ARC at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2004. NEU shifts back and forth between detail-saturated fragmentation and a near-static structuralism. "Wq Acid VII" and "Neu Ext" show evidence of Hecker's interest in the notion of the déja entendu, where the repetition of rhythmic patterns slowly densify the emission of events, further rupturing the sonic affect into a new re-structured gestalt. In "≤ Σ" constant fluctuations and ever-changing waveforms along the lines of a dynamic stochastic synthesis rupture the classic definition of "noise signal" used within the field of psychoacoustics. The last track "Yin Pitch Detection Synthesis Kissing" takes a seemingly opposite approach while re-synthesizing the recording of a garden. NEU CD comes with a 12-page booklet featuring the product photography of the original CD case design by Peter Saville: a laser-cut block of open porous foam, housed in a transparent, smoke-grey acrylic cover. Photography by Nick Turner. Mastered by Denis Blackham.
