// AIR CURRENTS ARE THE PROVIDENCE OF THE BREATH OF THE DEAD. THE SPIRITS OF THE DECEASED TRAVERSE THE RIVER STYX AS SOULS OF AIR. IN SANSKRIT PRANA, IN GREEK PSCYHE OR THE PNEUMA OF THE AURA; IN LATIN, THE ANIMUS AND SPIRITUS OF BEING. GATHERING THE SPIRITS OF THE DEAD ON ELECTROMAGNETIC TAPE AFTER THE MANNER OF K. RAUDIVE AND W.S. BURROUGHS — THIS BE DEAD MEDIA THAT UNWINDS TIME FROM ITS SPOOLS. TWO REEL-TO-REEL MACHINES CAPTURE THE LOVING CARESS OF ELECTRON-IMPRINTED TAPE. TIME OUT OF JOINT FALLS IN & OUT FO TAPE SYNC; THE RESONANT BEING OF BLANK MEDIA LOOPS THE FREQUENCY. //
IO/001 ––– features remixes of s* by a cabal of microsound, ambient, industrial, and experimental electronic producers from Canada and elsewhere, including Vancouver's coingutter, Montreal's i8u (aka France Jobin), Winnipeg’s scant intone, Jeff Carey of SKIF++ and renowned minimalists Richard Chartier and tomas phillips. The source material is from Tactical Tape Loop Division, a project of s* featuring experiments in Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) using tape loops, reel-to-reel machines and a Tesla coil to "capture the voices of the dead," a technique explored by William S. Burroughs and Konstantine Raudive.
