"After making his debut on the compilation Alba Absurdia, Operator continued to record electro-caustic musings and dance floor subversions for his first EP, OS1.1. Here are the results -- Operator's unique production techniques reveal themselves to be most eclectic and contemporary, managing to be both muso and funky at the same time. From the crackle of 'Streetlight Constellation' you could be in Keith Whitman / Fennesz guitar processing territory. 'Closed Circle' whops down a massive bassline on the table, then carves it up. 'Tisch' toys with detuned elements of the Boards/Christ axis, but adds a louche funkiness which goes down very well indeed. 'Das Boggon' broods a little more, but the clay pot percussive resonance translates well to an electronic context. 'For a whale' takes us someplace with Jonah we'd perhaps rather not have gone -- detuned, inside the belly of the beast, this track appears to relish the claustrophobia of its sound. 'I want to go to host' departs radically on a twelve minute conclusion, with guitar and eccentric percussion. Individual and different, enter the world of Operator for a while, you should find something you like."
