      Worth checking out: Curd Duca's recent release Elevator 3 on Mille
      Plateaux.

      Below is a decent summation of its content on behalf of the good folks at
      Other Music (www.othermusic.com) in NYC:

      CURD DUCA "Elevator 3" (Mille Plateaux, Germany) CD/LP $14.99/$11.99
      RealAudio: http://userweb.interactive.net/~tomc/curdduca.ram

      Duca's work has long been the most coherent and structured of any
      electronic artist on Mille Plateaux (yet); "Elevator 3" is no exception.
      And this is probably due to the origins of his music--rather than generate
      them from scratch or strip them down to near-nothingness, he tries to
      retain the sonic qualities of the samples he uses, even as he fragments
      them exaggeratedly. Decontextualized and de-textured, the he takes
      formerly
      lush muzak sounds down to a dull chill. As he grays music which formerly
      had vibrant color, he's purposefully softening and muffling the impact.
      This album does this even more than the two previous "Elevator"
      collections
      of miniatures (there are 48 tracks in 38 minutes here), and adds a
      vocalist, the wraithlike, vaporous Carin Feldschmidt. Like a journey
      through Times Square, blindfolded. [RE]
