"Who Stole The I Walkman? is the culmination of Isotope 217's last year of performing and rehearsing, and it offers their unusually familiar blend of collective improvisation, songwriting, and electronic manipulation. Who Stole The I Walkman? is the most accurate representation to date of the balance Isotope 217 seeks to achieve between live performance and the recording process. That is, some songs such as "The Harmolodge" or "Sint_D" are well crafted compositions, while others, such as "Input" are live improvisations. The balance between the two is evident in a tune such as "Metabass", which was composed in the recording studio from a series of improvised tracks and compositional bits -- and illustrates Isotope 217's ability to create atmospheric electronica on a jazz foundation.
