Its been a while since I last heard something from Kim Cascone. I am sure he didn’t give doing music, but what the hell he was up to? Traveling most likely, roaming the earth with concerts. And going places, means recording places. That is what this new CD is about: field recordings, treated with computer generated sounds, and Cascone’s voice. Not that he started singing, but he’s doing a narration at the beginning. That, I think, is a bummer. I am usually not fond of singing, but also talking is not so my coffee. He mixes that with field recordings and the whole thing lasts under twenty-eight minutes. Its not a bad release, but its something that seems a bit too easy for me. A bunch of field recordings, some long wave recordings, some computerized stuff and that’s it. Not bad, but not much tension either, no real power that one could perhaps except from his long standing reputation. Easy listening – in every sense of the word. (FdW) Vital Weekly 700
