"Galerie Neu is happy to announce the release of Florian Hecker's NEU CD. In apparent contrast to his recent album Acid in the Style of David Tudor, this CD features three computer generated pieces which were produced in close relation to Hecker's first exhibition at Gallery Neu in 2007 as well as a contribution for the exhibition Off the record / SOUND ARC at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2004. NEU CD shifts back and forth between detail-saturated fragmentation and a near static structuralism. Wq Acid VII and Neu Ext show evidence of Hecker's interest in the notion of the déja entendu, where the repetition of rhythmic patterns slowly densify the emission of events, further rupturing the sonic affect into a new re-structured gestalt. In = S constant fluctuations and ever changing waveforms along the lines of a dynamic stochastic synthesis rupture the classic definition of 'noise signal' used within the field of psychoacoustics. The last track Yin Pitch Detection Synthesis Kissing takes a seemingly opposite approach while re-synthesizing the recording of a garden. NEU CD comes with a 6 page leporello featuring the product photography of the original CD case design by Peter Saville. A laser cut block of open porous foam, housed in a transparent, smoke grey acrylic cover." (label info)
