WAND, MATT - 1 AND A HALF VOLT MUSIC (3"CD)


"the piece uses a dozen pocket game machines (Gameboys) programmed to generate permutations of the composers score which was structured using the rules of the game TETRIS ( ie: as gaps appeared in the music the score is adapted to fill them).... the project continues the artists long standing interest in totally portable and cheap noise/music making apparatus,. The CD comprises of about 9 sections taken sequentially from live recordings made during the day of the first performance at The Holden Gallery, Manchester, May2nd 2001. Despite the dry art installation premise, its an engrossing listen as the open acoustics of the space merge and rebound the 8 bit sounds until they turn from tinny to brassy and several of the machines decide they are actually Bass Clarinets???"
