"'A compilation of abstract electronic music from Australia and New Zealand.' Where this compilation succeeds is in it's ability to encompass the wide variety and all round high quality of the Pacific Rim's damaged and exploratory audio activities. However, in a single volume this compilation lays forth an initial reading of such activities, a chart to navigate the various creative threads unfolding throughout the region if you will. Stylistically the 60+ mins represented here runs the gamut from the hendrix meets ina-grm collision of Candlesnuffer, 'head in a television' static of Philip Samartzis, narrative driven kung-fu electroacoustics from Delire, skittering schizophrenia of Auigiugui, unusual vocal excursions of cray, gentle abstract beauty courtesy of Matthew Thomas, some subtle yet unnerving sonics of Darrin Verghagen and Netochka Nezvanova and some truly stunning alien frequencies unearthed via Dion Workman's mini disc feedback set up. Along with numerous other inventive approaches Strewth takes a cut-section of this disparate scene, presenting a broad range of challenging music packaged in standard jewel case with 12 page informative full colour booklet. Complete artists represented: Candlesnuffer, Delire, Philip Samartzis, zyzx, Xonk, Cray, Matthew Thomas, Netochka Nezvanova, Darrin Verhagen, Dave Franzke, Rosy Parlane, Oren Ambarchi, Auigiugui, Squinch, Dion Workman."
