HYPNOTIC SYMMETRY

Ian C Stewart "Hypnotic Symmetry" Soundclick MP3

A couple of years ago I finally broke down and bought myself a sequencer and a rack synthesizer. I always wanted to get into MIDI and sequencing but never got around to it until recently. Once I found a few of the significant synth sounds it was only a matter of time before I tried something like this. Um... darkly new agey I guess.

And, having never made a whole album in this style, I went ahead and made a whole album in this style. I think it was called Elements. But I don't think I ever made a cover for it or pressed up copies. I think I only got as far as uploading it to Soundclick.

sorta reminds me of the ambient album that i made that wasn't ambient. or something.

new age is one of those things that baffles me. i mean, some of it is obv why it works but some of it, esp the environmental / ambient stuff, i always wonder if the said artist could ever perform the 'piece' as it was on the album. maybe they aren't supposed to. i dunno. just me trying to pigeon hole people or something.

fzzy recollections

FZZY PMPR came about after I bought a used desktop PC that was curated by ECC's Mark Gunderson. 
 He loaded it up with the entire internet circa 1996 with every game, oddity and software package ever, along with some ECC ephemera. I eventually started experimenting with audio editing programs like Cool Edit and the like, trying to do "cut ups" of my own, which were just failed sound experiments really. Eventually I crafted an album of sample-based material, which was the Samarkand album "Continua". Eventually the megalomania took focus and a la Evolution Control Committee, Samarkand became FZZY PMPR which had as its members, what, DJ Arse and others, I think?

Megalomania gave way to regular mania and today it's not even a memory! That's the way Huntington's Disease works, I start off with this bossy, overpowering and seductive uhh drive to just point out every single thing in the universe which gradually cools until it's like it never even happene…
