descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Nick Hoffman's first full-length release since 2014's Necropolis. Here, Hoffman is creator and then observer of autonomous systems of sound creation, both from customized generative software (Side A) and recordings of electric fan motors and metallic objects (Side B). Despite their precise and abrasive timbres, these tracks feel more biological than Hoffman's past work, as he dissects and explores his role as creator. Untethered from initial intentions, the pieces are layered and surprising, revealing themselves as small, amorphous lifeforms emerging from otherwise inanimate states. They contribute to a cyclical existence, of which Hoffman is the obscure catalyst."-Notice Recordings
