other two cds. The first i got was "0.C" .
Pretty amazing i thought. Lots of little cut ups and blips. Quite
ryhtmical in his own way. He definately has his own style. And yes, some
long drone tracks towards the end.
I recently got "+/-". Not too different from the (later) "0.c", but with
a few more droning parts. I would still have to say that "0.C" is my
favourite, simply because it was the first thing i have heard from him!
