      Twyndyllyngs is an electronic music duo made up of Bill Fox and Howard
      Moscovitz. Both are from the Allentown area of Pennsylvania and a big part
      of the Electro-Music online community. While each is a performer in a
      diversity of musical groups, their music together as Twyndyllyngs is quite
      distinctive. After years of playing together Moscovitz and Fox have
      developed the ability to realize novel timbral based works in the live
      concert setting through a highly improvisational and intuitive process.
      Each performance is unique, with the arising pieces the result of a deep
      sonic exploration between the two.

      Twyndyllyngs will perform a live to air concert on the 12.04.11 broadcast
      of STAR'S END. Please tune in for details.

        New things get old. But this has not been the case with electronic
        montage music. The artistic manipulation of sound seems to be
        continuing on very well since its inception among the works of
        Stockhausen and Varese. Rachel Evans recording under the name MOTION
        SICKNESS OF TIME TRAVEL makes a significant and pleasant contribution
        to this lineage with a self-titled double disc. Evans turns her small
        studio into a large force, continually combining and recombining a
        fascinating range of timbres into a variety of sonic textures and
        aural colors. As if saying that we are taking this journey together
        the four roughly 20-minute tracks on this release are obviously the
        products of experimentation, but are not completely random
        realizations. The music builds slowly and inexorably into a torrent of
        sound - then drops away revealing soft synthesized tones or echoing
        word fragments. Better than the playback of frozen vocal samples
        throughout this work Evans provides us with layered singing. And an
        oh-so ethereal wordless human song it is that drifts across the
        celestial sphere of the listening mind. MOTION SICKNESS OF TIME TRAVEL
        offers something more than its avant-garde roots. Along with its
        unusual manipulations of sound, harsh synthesizer modulations and
        saturated tape effects there are even more passages of ethereal calm
        and beauty - allowing this work to stand equally alongside early
        albums by Michael Stearns or the more solemn pieces by Voice of Eye.
        Without a distinctive melodic narrative, very little in the way of
        rhythm and its overall expressionistic expansive feel MOTION SICKNESS
        OF TIME TRAVEL makes use of the fact that human perception is
        unstable. Missing many aspects of conventional compositions this
        listening experience often feels unteathered. Evans makes music
        appealing to the intellect as well as to the senses and seems from a
        bygone era - one where composers and musicians crafted original sounds
        and ideas and then spent time and effort organizing them in such a way
        as to stimulate a listener. There is another nostalgic element
        inherent within this music... optimism. It is performed solely because
        the composer's ideas are important; that it is done so well helps to
        preserve this musical art form.

        Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music the double disc MOTION
