TICAL, H. - IMPACT (CD-R - USED vg+/vg)

cd with light surface marks, plays fine. cover buckled "here we have a 1971 vedette library lp, credited to one "h. tical", contaning a set of fugue-state-inducing song-length pieces for synthesizer (vcs3, if i know my synths...); minimal and mostly free-time, this is gnarly, distorted stuff consisting of lonely sweeps of ring-modulated grankle, drippy spring-reverbed rhythm patterns, and hostile, filtered white-noise. i used to be mystified as to how library records such as this came to exist, let alone be commissioned in the first place... but this does do a bang-up job at evoking some barren void of a landscape, alien or otherwise. in a way its the polar opposite of the tod dockstader library music creel pones; a closer comparison would be to imagine the individual synthesizer parts from the pierre henry "mise en musique" creel pone laid bare and given the full frequency spectrum to gnaw at the temple. not the easiest-on-the-ears of the recent creel pone series by a long-shot... but if you're feeling some vapor-trail dust and/or the raw, unpolished voltage of early synthesizer blat, this could be your magic rainbow-arc..." (label info) Limited edition of 100 copies.
