Irikarah – “Programmed Illusions” – [Misanthrope Studio]
This is one of Andreas Arndt’s many albums, released 2007 — the music is lo-fi industrial power angst music combined with heavy doses of pink noise and some non-drum beats sneak in here and there. The voices are manipulated with modulations and distortions and phone eq:ing so that the lyrics are mostly non-understandable statements about something where the title lyrics might give minuscule ideas what the intent of the track is. Some might enjoy this kind of power noise, it is indeed an acquired taste. But I missed any finesse and artistry amongst all the tracks, even with noise music you need artistic intent and the multitude of repetitious noise making has its limits.
