At the end of the year 1999, several Austrian artists
active in theelectronic and experimental scene associated to form the project
of Culture LANding-Electronic. A particular exhibition was organized therefore
in the Tyrolese Landesmuseum Fernandeum, changing from an Art and History
Museum into a temple dedicated to the cult of sampling and computers. The
compositions presented during this event are partly on the LANding compilation,
regrouping all these artists from the LANS (Local Area Networks). And the
result is impressive and fascinating. One thinks about the works of Lagowski
with SETI, a mixture of electronics and spatial sounds taken from the best
soundtracks of extraterrestrial science-fiction movies. Most tracks have
an experimental electronic ambient obedience, and some rather move into
an electronica direction with a jolly techno rythm.. One recovers between
othersStefan Bidner, Thomas Feuerstein, Markus Hammer, Mayr/Wazacs, Franz
Pomassi and Voice Crack from Switzerland.
A superb compilation for who wants to start an initiation to the delicate digital rythms of a scene in full evolution.
Excellent from the beginning to the end.
