Comment: when did you listen to the sound of your refrigerator recently? Have you ever consciously done it? This 18-track improvised issue of electronic sounds is not about your sensual, intimate life, it might be about your everyday life surrounded by machines in your home. One could hear squeaks, thumps,crackles and slightly abrasive noises coming out from different corners and walls and tiny slots for your pleasure, at least I hope so. Technically it is a collaboration of three musicians who make difference by creating a soundscape you don not used to notice in your ordinary life. Of course, those sounds are amplified and thereby more nuanced and directed than surrounding sounds usually used to be and because of that one will pay more attention to them. Obviously it is a session of improvised music and because of that is a little bit more than just listening to an average session of electro-acoustic music. Secondly, I have always felt to be enthralled by the aesthetic of the so-called "errors" (the sharp sounds of snapping noises). The issue is a part of the discography of Chicago, US-based imprint pan y rosas discos which in turn is a lille yet important part of the profile of the city`s experimental music.
