MusicAEnchiriadiS — Music for Nikola Tesla
(Musea Dreaming DR 8430.AR, 2005, CD)

by Cesar Montesano, Published 2006-05-01

Music for Nikola Tesla Cover art

Industrial electronics bearing a modern classical edge for a dark millennium with trip-hop at its heels. Synthetic landscapes give way as the tone is propulsively jettisoned to a danceable future. This style carries forth and recurs throughout. For a few interspersed moments, the pathos of being caught floating in an alien atmosphere helms the grain again. Massed electronic choirs dance amidst pointillated electric piano creating a brief air of Andrei Tarkovsky's The Stalker. Before we know it, we are abruptly dropped off in a landscape of metronomic proportions, enhanced by plasticine strings and the aforementioned carrying forth as an undercurrent. Afterwards, we are treated to an update on vocoder vocals popped into a techno romp. Moderately akin to Bruce Haack at that point, albeit more punchy in using the kind of sequencing that rose to popularity in the mid to late 90s. By and large, the album is an amalgam of outré electronics mixed with beats and a conceptual cherry on top.
