Peter Blamey believes in minimal means: .
his kit is two little mixers and a
single oscillator, wired together into
an unstable multiplexed feedback web.
What emerges, though, is nothing like
the tick-tock trance of much recent
"minimalism." It's pulsing, spinning
clouds of chirps and cracks, broken up
with chunks of blurry oscillator drone
and spluttering, twittering noise; and
all those elements drawn from a single
unstable, tangled mass of signal. Here
Blamey delivers nine dense, intricate,
just-in-control slices of analog chaos
synthesis. Laptops: who needs 'em?
