"Mecha Fixes Clock is the brainchild of its founder and principle artist, Michel F. Côté, and features an incredible ensemble carefully chosen from Quebec's vibrant Musique Actuelle scene. The sound and overall feel of this fantastic album might be referred to it as ambient improv, and it shares some characteristics with a number of projects on Norway's Rune Gramophone label. What makes this recording stand out is the fact that despite employing a wide variety of instrumentation there remains an overall cohesive element that brings the whole recording together; lending the listener the possibility of surgical composition. Often, it is too easy to describe music as cinematic but here it is indeed the case. References can also be made to indie-based projects like Rachels and Boxhead Ensemble and film composers such as Ennio Morricone and Edgar Varese."
