Digital Terrestrial

Aural Illusions (LP)

Label: Die Stadt

Format: 12"

Genre: Electronic

In stock


**Limited edition of 500 copies on heavy clear vinyl in clear plastic cover** Based around digital lock grooves this work by Digital Terrestrial is also observed by composers like Steve Reich (Minimalist/Systems music) and will eventually be performed by a String Quartet. It could be thought of more as a piece of conceptual art rather than just a piece of music. This vinyl only release could well be described as 'a lock groove record without the lock grooves...'. Playing time over 38 minutes. 

It’s impossible to not mention Cabaret Voltaire when talking about Richard H. Kirk. Formed as a Dada-inspired performance art group in 1973, CV evolved into one of the most influential bands to come out of the British industrial scene alongside peers such as Throbbing Gristle. Based in Sheffield, the sound of Cabaret Voltaire was conjured up in their infamous studio Western Works where, alongside the band’s output Kirk was relentlessly productive on his own terms.

From releasing his first album in 1980, he avidly explored new avenues in electronic music, continually adapting to the cultural shifts going on around him. In the mid-’80s he was embracing the sound of electro that crept over from the States, while the acid house explosion was a natural home for his machine-wielding proficiency. Having already spent longer than most in the game, and coming from the uncompromising artistic angle of CV, his influence on techno and other forms of electronic music continued well into the ’90s.
