5.0 out of 5 stars detached metal voice 19 Sep 2010
By dot
Format:Audio CD
NEURAL IT

Shortly after releasing his second album, Complex Tone Test, David Newman, a British composer and sound
designer better known under the moniker Autistici, is back at work with a new project. In Detached Metal Voice,
from the first volume of the "Early Works", a body of noisy audio data, imperfections and interferences seem to
be arranged in quite rarefied sequences, and may also include different recordings, with an abstract
conceptual result. A somewhat eager narrative, full of experimental dynamics and rather diverse techniques,
enacted with restraint and stylistic mastery. In the heterogeneity of the plots, there are even minimal jazzy
grooves - in very hybrid forms - reflections of an "emotional" execution that the author doesn't eschew,
fascinated by a plethora of influences and references. Dynamic elements overlap quite vividly and in a
participative way, sometimes favoring more metallic and rhythmical scores, but always conveying a disturbing
feeling of acoustic pollution. Aurelio Cianciotta.

4.0 out of 5 stars Headphone Commute Review 5 Aug 2010
By Headphone Commute - Published on Amazon.com
Early Works, as the title suggests, is a collection of previously unreleased compositions recorded by David Newman within the last decade. This is a rasterized array of sounds, bleeps, clicks, and field recordings, ala musique concrète digitalis. The first volume, subtitled Detached Metal Voice, is a selection of early works "exploring the anxiety of disconnected elements striving to find connection in a world of digital communication." These are experimental pieces with many exploratory techniques and tools, like sinewave oscillators, home-made tone generators, and works with ASY, a synthesizer based on vocal tract models developed at Bell Laboratories in the 60s. Be sure to check out Whispering Mongo Man, featuring an audio interview with John Lennon, composed entirely out of edited-out speech, leaving behind the space occupied by his breath. "The tracks encourage the listener to consider the complex question of how meaning, relationships and connections are constructed, communicated and perceived."
