Album Review

Voice Crack – “Earflash” – [Dexter’s Cigar]

cinder   1/21/2010   A Library, CD

These guys were a Swiss improvisational group that started in the early 70s and are now disbanded. By the early 80s, they would take apart normal everyday items such as radios, brass instruments, turntables, etc, and recreate and manipulate them into “new sounds using magnetic and radio waves in a complex system controlled by movements of their hands and by light.” Almost like finding the inner hidden child inside an old man, a new life in ways. What you get is crazy skidding alien transmitted signals, glitchy and itchy electronic sounding television warnings. Big timpani sounding drums give it that primal base sound as well.
