 "A gleeful savagery, with the droll wit of Satie's piano, the
breathless silences of Japanese music, the collaged clutter of
Stockhausen's short-wave radio suites, and the political bite of
Brecht/Weill songs." -- Keyboard Magazine

sourced entirely from local hyper-commercialized 'rap/urban' format pop radio.

9pm - Disc, (members of Matmos, Lesser, and kid606)
A balance between hypnotic 4/4 techno minimalism paced at exactly 133.33
bpm; raw and processed sounds of scarred, stuttering, skippings CDs; and
utterly free digital noise and structured, rhythmic composition.
Disc is a collaborative project between Jay Lesser (akaLSR), Kid 606,
and Drew Daniel and Martin Schmidt of Matmos. Between these three camps,
the members of Disc have previously released music on labels like Mille
Plateaux, Matador, Vinyl Communications, Fat Cat, Diskono, Ipecac, 555,
Touch and Go/Quarterstick, Lucky Kitchen, Kultbox, V/VM Test Recordings,
Lissy's, etc. Disc has previously released three albums and a
collaboration with K. K. Null on the Vinyl Communications label.
"the greatest work of electronic sound manipulation since Steve Reich's
tape experiments" - Richard Meltzer (about disc's 1st record 2xcd)
