"A veteran of the legendary Mills College Center for Contemporary Music scene, Jay has been composing since before most so-called 'glitchcore' or 'quasi-academic-cum-i.d.m.' musicians were born. Jay Cloidt has spent half a lifetime's study and work on the real nuts and bolts of structuring original electronic music, starting in the days before digital synths, samplers, drum machines, or DSP. Dark Matter is the follow-up to his noted Kole Kat Krush CD on the Starkland label. This album is much more 'brute' in the Phthalo / Techno sense than Kole Kat Krush. At many points it is a thorough study of very sustained notes; it demands patience from the listener. Cloidt was around when concrete sounds and synthesis were very deliberate affairs, and an actual inherent part of the creation of the sound itself as opposed to an 'added' process which the sound 'goes through', and it shows in this work. It is all composition and synthesis -- all very intentional." (label info)
