Album Review

Hub, The – “Wrecking Ball” – [Artifact Recordings]

Cousin Mary   10/12/2009   A Library, CD

Recordings from 1989 to 1993 by the Hub that calls its work ???live computer network music???. Composition/improvisation encompasses multiple electronic musicians communicating over a network which the liner notes liken to a gamelan.

Accessible, some cuts sound like industrial noise, field recordings and acoustic instruments. Frequently very beautiful.

Spoken word on track 5, very nice piano on track 7. I assume the track 6, Das Lied von der Nerd??? is a pun on Gustav Mahler???s ???Das Lied von der Erde??? (Song of the Earth) about their computer-generated music.
