Review excerpt: ... Built with a Function Generator and an analogue recorder Panasonic SV 3800 DAT it is the
result of a fifteen-minute sound continuum using a physically corrupted BASF master tape.
The intentions behind the project, and particularly its release on obsolete media, can be understood as a critical
comment on the instant gratification of the digital realm. ...Here the process is perhaps more simple and direct
but the work retains a strong poetic, fluent in its minimalist suggestions and the cryptic sounds produced by
generating different types of electrical waveforms over a wide range of frequencies. Each of the DAT cassettes –
technology that formed a coexistence between analogue and digital – are unique, overturning the ‘identical clone’
feature typical of a format that is now defunct for the general public but still used by major international broadcasters.
