With this latest Tinty Music Noise Unit Kevin O'Connor exhibits his recent fascination with Aube, Merzbow & Masonna. The tape opens with a show of grinding white noise which slowly fades into assorted clicks and chirp only to return to burning feedback once again. The rest of the tape variates between harsh resonance and soothing turbulence. The most impressive thing about Kevin's material is that he does an excellent job making the dissonance relaxing to the ear rather that irritating by mastering at a volume lower than normal. Also Kevin has a tendency to play with more conventional sources like outputting an executable file to the audio device on a computer as on "Executable #2" & "Executable #3". Samples such as those make the computer geek in me shiver in delight and encourage me to run out and dump a core file to the sound card on my own computer for fun.
