Solo – Volume 2

CD / Ed.300
We Can Elude Control
2016

Volume 2 presents 6 sinewave compositions transmitted through the AM band and recorded through a couple of old radios. The simple signal chain generates a dynamic paired field of textural noise, resulting from the combination of the signal volatility, overdriving, frequency modulation and its consequent harmonics all interacting with the innate analogue tendencies of the short wave ether.

Solo – Volume 1

Volume 1 is a recording composed of a number of takes made with a battered portable cassette recorder. It's faulty and old mechanics affected not only the recording process but also its playback. No effects were added. Recorded between December 2012 and June 2013.
