"A Call To Ignite" C13

Adam Void embodies the Renaissance artist, a multi-disciplined explorer and creator of sound capture/sculpture, photography, painting, writing, you name it. What really stands out here is a raw, sincere reverence for the unpolished, industrial-strength vibrations, their wringing out cyclical jolts of brute force, trapped and/or emulated by AV, and stuck to tape in DIY/No-Fi fashion. “A Call to Ignite” may bear only one lone train whistle in its denouement, but the preceding 12 minutes boast a jarring series of possessed/distorted Casiontone beats and Dial-Up-Modem-core destruction that carries every bit of weighted battery as any rusty-railed bridge bearing a heavy load across its creaking back.
