002 peter blamey salted felt mixer/mixer/oscilator recorded in sydney march 2002

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?
