Sonic Detours Review: Remote

Four soundscape pieces recorded live, in front of an audience, apparently, with one guy playing the "Orpheus Interactive Animation System." The first, "Chipped Teeth," is slow and scary and gets more so as it goes on, with unintelligible, sampled voices added later. Low-end, grumbled darkness. More of the same on "Murmur," which closes the side. The same general feel continues on side two, but with a flutter of a bit more activity. —Russ Stedman
