The first full album on vinyl for Belgium's favourite experimental/noise couple Fil & Nat Cavaleri. Using frequencies & sounds recorded during their many concerts and tours, home made sounds generators, modified devices, lost and found sounds from many sources (as old vinyls, turntables without records, radios, tapesâ€¦), they manage to create an atmosphere that was described by the pressing plant's manager as 'very Stanley Kubrick'... which can obviously only be taken a compliment.
From pure electro-acoustic sounds over field recordings and sampled old records to blistering noise, this album is far from 'functional background music' but an interesting whirlwind of sound and an engaging listen.
