"Rewind 2010: Our massive annual survey of the past 12 months in underground music, including our Top 50 Records of The Year, plus the top records in each genre, all voted for by our crack squad of contributors, who also give us their personal highs and lows of 2010. We also survey the year's trends and developments. Plus, a selection of high-polling musicians deliver their verdicts on the year. Features: Giuseppe Ielasi (The Italian composer's work straddles a vast array of practices, from turntable manipulation to sampladelic stunts); Peter Christopherson (Stephen Thrower pays tribute to the Throbbing Gristle and Coil founder who died in November 2010); Lichens (Marc Masters hears about sonic evolution and analogue synthesis from Brooklyn's Robert Lowe); Pat Maherr (Expressway Yo-Yo Dieting, Indignant Senility: just two of the sonic pirate's many aliases); Global Ear: Leeds (Fluxus anarchy and perpetual reinvention hallmark the North English city's avant fringes); Cross Platform: Toshiya Tsunoda (Do we change a place by listening to it, asks the Japanese sound artist whose mics seek out the world's hidden resonance); Invisible Jukebox: Scanner (The urban flaneur and multitasking sound artist tunes in to The Wire's mystery record selection); Electronic Voice Phenomena (Ken Hollings meets the ghostbusters CM von Hausswolff and Michael Esposito, communing with dead voices via Edison's wax cylinder technology); Epiphanies: Marcus Boon."
