JESSICA RYLAN + ORPHAN FAIRYTALE “Lost in Time and Space” (Pluim)

Two of noise’s least classifiable females team up for this pipe-cleaner-entwined purple CS on Eva/Fairytale’s here-today-gone-tomorrow label. I’m in love with most OF stuff but teaming up with Ms. Rylan has for whatever reason resulted in a totally flat, no-fi wall of plinky-plonky keyboard noise that fails to hypnotize or evolve. It starts at a frantic electric pace and never blinks for the duration of its running time. Maybe the acoustics of the space where this piece was performed were radder than what the tape recorder captured, but if not this seems like a pretty tedious way to kill a quarter hour. Wish I could get my six bucks back.
