ILLUSION OF SAFETY

Sedation and Quell

(Crippled Intellect Productions - CIP021) 10-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Electronic synthesis, computer composition and manipulation, musical reference, and close microphone recording by Dan Burke. Side one is a pleasantly dense with an old typewriter, turntable pops/crackles, and shortwave radio interference topped by subtle frequency and oscillation tweaks. Side two counterbalances and wavers through numerous delicate swimming tones, eventually subdued by a listing rhythmic faction suffused with other surprises. Edition of 500.

VERTONEN

We Had A Few Sprinkles Today But Not Enough To Help Out The Garden

(Crippled Intellect Productions) Used CD $4.00

Treatments and sound manipulation by Blake Edwards. Deep, subterranean ringing textures. Flanged croaks and other textures from a microscopic universe. Low register thuds and tiny sounds deep in the distance. Quiet, tortured sounds with high-frequency intrusions. Stuttering, panned samples and hollow dings, reminiscent of harsher noise at a lower volume, but with a swirling, almost psychedelic quality. Almost-musical loops heard through reverberations and audio grime. Sealed
