"The Twentieth Century brought with it an unparalleled use of artificial sound in the form of George Squier's Muzak - a creation designed to enhance (and perhaps determine) amongst other things our 'urban/social/shopping' experience. For decades, no mall or place of substantial commerce was complete without the dulcet tones of Muzak. To many it would seem that there is a world of difference between the bleating high frequency sounds of an Indian marketplace and multiple channels of mid-tempo instrumental music filling our shopping malls; however the ability for sound to draw and focus our attention is universal and well documented. THIS CD EDITION DOCUMENTS INCIDENTAL AMPLIFICATIONS, A SPATIAL SOUND INSTALLATION INSTALLED IN A VARIETY OF URBAN SHOPPING AREAS AND MALLS ACROSS BRISBANE IN JULY AND AUGUST 2005." (label info) Feat. Chris Watson, Domenico Sciajno, Terre Thaemlitz, Brandon Labelle, M.Rösner and many more.
