the original music for loudspeakers.
Sounds on tape - stretched and pulled
and twisted into a fantastic abstract
cinema for the ear.

Bernard Parmegiani is the godfather
of this medium. Cited by the Aphex Twin
as the spectral king of analogue.

Christian Calon is his acousmatic
heir - the music of sounds so transformed
they are unidentifiable.

Farmers Manual present clouds of buzzes,
crackles and bleeps wrapped in digital imagery.

In the bar, Sonic Arts Network - Hardcore
electroacoustic tape noise. Concrete past
and present.
