Comment: as the title hints at this 11-track outing the whole seems to be interesting or at least playful. By thinking of a soundhouse I can imagine a huge apartment filled in with massive analogue synths you need at times the ladder to implement all the applications of the machines. The two Chilean blokes provide a frantic blend of electro-acoustic progressions, gurgling and glitched-out noises, pulsating frequencies, vowel experiments, randomised piano chords and something else of which could be pigeonholed after you would have listened to it. It was recorded in one of the studios in Sheffield, the home town for such important avant and pop combos as Cabaret Voltaire, and Pulp, respectively. It is improvised music after it is edited, it is live music after it is cut into a bunch of 12 different tracks. Yeah, it is a shiny, mind-provoking outlet being issued on the Chilean Pueblo Nuevo.
