Half of this Tinty Music release consists of material recorded during the first two live performances of the project. The remainder of the material contains an unabridged version of a track previously available as two edited sections on the second Tinty Music release "Sublimation", and a brand new noise collage. By far the most interesting tracks are the from the live performances, of which I was lucky enough to experience the second performance on October 19, 1996. Both live pieces are totally spontaneous and as a result as an abstract collection of experimental feedback, noise, and delays. The first track is the most intriguing simply because the majority of it was performed on turntable with no ground and the delay on the needle set to maximum. The sound evoked was created by rubbing various materials against the arm of the turntable and tapping other objects on the case and cover. The lack of grounding on the turntable coupled with the extra delay created an very odd collection of distorted sounds which were all very outside the realm of music previously created by this artist. This is by far the best release by Tinty Music to date and I hope that Kevin O'Connor continues with the experimental concepts and musical creation methods exemplified by his live material in the future.

Note: The limited edition version of this release comes with a hand painted tape and case and laboriously detailed liner notes.

Tinty Music Noise Unit is: Kevin O'Connor
