Alessio Natalizia's limited three-volume Voices cassette series (2014) is reworked and extended for this limited double vinyl release, marking a point of transition for Natalizia's Not Waving project in advance of a crushing dancefloor album for Diagonal, forthcoming at the time of this release. These 18 reshaped mixes of the tapes' original 23 tracks are shuffled up like a deck of tarot cards to form a new narrative. Drawing inspiration from Ivan Pavlov, Oliver Sacks, B. F. Skinner, and "the relationship between perception, memory, attention and comprehension," they render a quietly burning mind full of ideas and syn├Žsthetic sensation, from the lush drone harmonics of "A Part of Thought" to pulsing EBM lab golems like "The Behaviourist Approach," with a really special touch for beautifully wistful, Eldritch/Italian analog electronics in the likes of "No Kill" or lump-in-throat closer "Voices." Perhaps the best comparison would be with Pye Corner Audio's Black Mill volumes, but Not Waving's varied yet coherent aesthetic feels more like a lost compilation of library music or early industrial music than the work of one super-talented guy. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton.
