      Dwight Ashley may never learn to tame his impulses into a style.
      The smoldering emotion of ATAXIA (68'28") does not fit
      comfortably into any one movement. His influences here are
      less musical and more from national and world events. In 12
      crowded compositions Ashley finds refuge in a surreal world of
      sound. On ATAXIA his so-called neo-expressionism melts into a
      tempestuous state of the union message where blunt collages
      of battling tonalities and churning sonic textures advance like a
      storm front. With very little in the way of rhythm, melody and
      harmony, Ashley's compositions are realized through variations
      in timbre and tone - the most basic concept in Electronic Music.
      The songs are found in the making, and Ashley discovers new
      possibilities along the way. His work penetrates, then devours. It
      is a way of thinking in sound - which captures the brutality of our
      time. Though the political inquisition of this work may estrange
      some listeners, Ashley is so strident and strange, he comes off
      looking like a harbinger, not an oddity. ATAXIA is a truthful cultural
      inquest and appeals for less chaos on higher ground.
