Comment: this is a weird issue of a sort of distorted music. Indeed, this kind involves previously created music and snippets of speeches to be destructed and warped due to fine glitches, scratchy radio waves, microscopic noises, something which could frequently be denoted as domestic noise. For instance, Holger Czukay by CAN was one of the pioneers by using radio waves as a music component. In comparison to the krautrock legend Cage Cabarrett`s work is sonically more incisive and shrill being remarkably more close to noise and (post-)industrial music. However, the title of this 4-track issue hints more closely at BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and in fact, having aesthetically very close similarities with this one. It used to undulate from silent, dormant forms to more elemental outbursts thereof providing some emotional impact. In a nutshell, it is a very intriguing one while preserving its consistency. The issue is a part of the discography of the Portuguese imprint XS Records.
