Remixing a couple tracks from his previous Ghost album while chiselling out a couple fresh fits of ferocity, Bristol's Matt Elliot (ex-Flying Saucer Attack) continues his dark excursion on this EP.

THIRD EYE FOUNDATION Sound of Violence

Sharp edged rhythms conflict with whispers and screams from the spirit world as the raw and rusted beats create a horrific take on drum and bass. Elliot's ability to create expansive, and in this case, frightening, atmospheres makes Sound Of Violence a vision of hellish chaos for the tortured souls in all of us. Ian Danzig Mika Vainio Onko (Touch / Dutch East) Onko is an experimental music release for Panasonic's Mika Vainio, who kept his rhythm machines off-line while making these sounds for people who don't get enough digital noise in their environment.

"Kelvin"'s quiet hums and interludes of static may make you think your stereo is broken, but this is the essential grain of the most basic electronic sound unit. In "lcmm (If?)," data processing tweets are even further reduced into Mika's most minimal ?techno? yet. And during his epic 36 minute "Onko Parts 1-11 [Is It?]," an extensive index of test-tone beeps and drones is presented so that a Dutch art gallery's patrons could experience a new level of cyber-muzak. Onko is Mika's most abstract music to date and recommended for fans of the lovely music of Alvin Lucier.
