When utilising devices not designed for ˜conventional sound generation," interesting results can, and quite often do, emerge. Antimatter aka Xopher Davidson offers up 11 studies in what could be described as "non-linear sound composition", using signal generators, test equipment and an analogue computer (whatever that is) as a modular synthesizer of sorts, creating washes, fades and blasts of white noise in a symphony of electronic pulses, rumbling tones and dense oscillations. - Nick Giles
Critical Monkey is the sound project of robi kauker for exploring worlds of noise and emotion. elements of found, created, generated and degenerate sound are stitched together for the engagement of the contemporary primate. building upon the noise of the detached social structural collapse, a devolution of the instinctive melodies and rhythms emerge to satisfy the simian soul.
