ECCOTONIC: FLOW MOTION
Working under the name Eccotonic, film composer and recording artist Cato is a true do-it-yourselfer who created most of this electronica/lounge album inside the computer.
JOSEPH LIVINGSTONE: THE FUTILITY ROOM
The Futility Room
These orchestral works were performed with just one keyboard and a few modules.
NORMAN FAIRBANKS: 7 DAYS MICROSLEEP
7 Days Microsleep
The entire album was written for and played on a Yamaha Tenori-on.
THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS: THE ELSE
John Linnell of They Might Be Giants
TMBG is quirky and fun, as always. Look for our exclusive interview with them in next month's issue.
UNDERWORLD: OBLIVION WITH BELLS
Oblivion with Bells
A tribute to live electronics, dance, and the thrill of improvising under pressure.
