Album Review

Vertonen – “Le Coeur Mecanique” – [Ratskin Records]

humana   7/15/2013   A Library, CD

The Mechanical Heart is exactly what this CD is–sounds of hydraulic and half ton presses, air filtration, generators, vents, diesel and gas engines, and more captured at such places as shredding, desalination, recycling facilities and process lines throughout Illinois (and that’s why the release is dedicated to Ravenswood Industrial corridor in Chicago). The liner notes contain instructions and warnings about operating the machinery, and this last one is applicable to life as much as to machinery: “Do not exceed the proper pressure for the job. Always watch and listen to what is happening between the platens.”
