"For 25 years, Illusion of Safety has charted the terra incognita where sound, silence, noise and music intersect. Current audio emphasis includes electronic synthesis, computer composition and manipulation, musical reference, and close microphone recording. Side one is a pleasantly dense, yet not cluttered by any means, assemblage of diverse elements including an old typewriter, turntable pops/crackles, and what appears to be shortwave radio interference topped by subtle frequency and oscillation tweaks. Side two offers a beautiful counterbalance: after an initial punch announcing the track, we waver through numerous delicate swimming tones that are eventually subdued by a listing rhythmic faction suffused with other surprises."
