Yoshihide, Otomo & Voice Crack: bits, bots & signs (erstwhile)
Label: erstwhile    
Released in: USA    

One of Otomo's first projects after abandoning (and before returning to) more traditional instruments was this meeting with the Swiss duo Voice Crack, who play "cracked, everyday electronics." Voice Crack knock the hidden voices out of toasters and microwaves, manipulating their internal electronics to make them sing. Otomo here focuses on other electronically generated sounds, including his beloved sine wave.
"There's an intense focus upon the fine detail of the unfolding electronic fields, with the Swiss duo providing a constantly shifting foreground of spontaneous events to Otomo's sparer high frequency backgrounds. The melding of the two provides an extraordinary expansiveness to the sound, rich in imagistic associations."--Alan Cummings, Wire
