data 70 Space Loops Volume One (clear vinyl double 7", £10.95)label: enraptured
Limited reissue, gatefold sleeve. Featuring Bob Bhamra & Jon Chambers. Ambient sound sculptors Bob Bhamra & Jon Chambers attended a lecture given by amateur astronomer Andrezj Woeicyk and convinced him to supply them with recordings of the returned "messages" for an experiment without precedent in modern music. Using a process of pixilation to "map" the topography of the data supplied by Woeicyk they edited it into batches of seemingly meaningful repetitions and then used a complex network of vintage synthesizers to make audible these unique inter-stellar conversations. "Space Loops, vol 1" features 16 loops created from the mass of data. On first listening it sounds compelling..on second listening it is mesmerizing..after continued exposure its effect is both disquieting and enlightening.
