...configuring individual ambient, micro-sound, & glitch-loop endeavors from eM, a Produce, Thermal, Autechre, Sketch, Brian Eno, Trent Reznor, (an unreleased Quake track), Monolake, et al., tracks build off one another until the combined synergy completes a graceful arc-like sweep on the final 'B' side offering. Absolute ear candy! [Credits: teapin, for the John Cale track; Michael Bentley, (of the Foundry, www.foundrysite.com ), for project inspiration]. ~ :-p

Looks nice. cool art too. Check out Merck Records for more of this. Also, the Clicks+Cuts comps, Basic Channel Recordings, Force Inc. and other robotic love stories.

wow, this looks really really tasty. that opening roach/thermal/eno gambit looks killer. i'd be remiss if i didn't get nerdy and say that the cale track is "stainless steel gamelan." yoo doo tres bon.

Thanks very much for the kind words Gene, I appreciate the feedback!
I'm glad you liked the linkages. Even though the Interpolations are
short (they actually started out much longer, but detracted from the
impact of the episodes in longer form), it took quite a while to get
them worked out and functioning smoothly.

Thanks again for taking the time to drop me a note, it definitely
made my morning!

All the best...

I asked Gene for two mixes he was proud of (a trick I learnt from Curtis, who did it to me on our first trade) and I got this and zer:0-sQuared.
What you get with a g.a.b labs production is a close listening experience; this is music you can wear (as it seems Gene often does) to augment your environment. If people choose to wear various tints of shades to alter their visual world, why shouldn't they also be aloud allowed to augment their aural world ? This taps in to that same zen ethos of listening that leads to John Cage's 4'33" - But is is it music ? Who cares, if it sounds good, wear it!
