More Info

DAVID LEE MYERS ist auch als ARCANE DEVICE bekannt und hat v.a. Anfang der 90er unter diesem Namen hochinteressante Feedback-Musik verffentlicht. Diese dritte Zusammenarbeit mit A.TIETCHENS nach Speiseleitung (auf Raum 312) dringt in einem Mikrokosmos aus geheimnisvollen elektronischen Sounds ein, die sich schnell verndern und stets Spannung aufrechterhalten... erschienen auf einem neuen Hamburger Label.

The artist's work consists of creating original circuitry that forces electronic effects devices to generate their own tones and patterns, often in unpredictable ways that are hard to tame. Myers fed his music to electro-acoustic artist Asmus Tietchens (aka Hematic Sunsets) who shaped it into strange soundscapes that could belong as much to Luc Ferrari and Pierre Henry as to modern sound artists like Koji Asano or Rafael Toral. Their soundscapes often hold a dark, almost Gothic atmosphere -- the resonances of electronic cathedrals. Although process-generated (at least in its initial stage), the music never sounds like a calculated exercise. Each piece has been carefully shaped, composed. The sound palette is varied, but always remains close to vintage musique concrte. If track titles like "T29:M5/3" or "T31:M5/10" are not very talkative, the album title already states the best description possible: a dense, rich electrical flux, sculpted with art. Recommended.
