This is a rather unusual recorded material from Yiorgis Sakellariou, a greek sound artist who has been concentrated for the past few years under the project and recording name Mecha/Orga over treating manipulated field recordings and electroacoustic sounds into minimal atmospheric and textural live compositions, both on stage and in various releases. “31:56” (2007 production) is rather different in context; no sample-based or acoustic material is used but strict electronically generated signals, utilizing computer-software oscillations and filtering to create a constant resonating drone. The frequency spectrum distinctively resembles the sounds of vintage 8-bit computers but the composition retains the typical abstract and imposing structure of Mecha/Orga’s sonic attitude.
