BOOMKAT say: "A follow-up to the excellent Detached Metal Voice compilation
of early material from Autistici, this second installment covers works
recorded between 2001-2005. Autistici is the recording alias of David
Newman, head of the Audiobulb label, though arguably his key work to date
has come courtesy of the 12k label. The 2008- released Volume Objects
remains an engagingly musical example of the microsound genre, though at the
time you'd never have expected Autistici to have already accumulated such a
rich archive of material. Compared with the first Early Works release, the
music here is indicative of a more cultured technician, with pieces like
'Farm', 'Cutlery' and 'Stone Steps Into Water' revealing the workings of an
accomplished experimental sound engineer. Similarly, mysterious
electroacoustic miniatures like '14 Switches On A Hidden Wall' or 'Soft Grey
Generator' stir up all manner of intriguing noises without sufficiently
conforming to structure or narrative to be thought of as compositions in any
strict sense, but they're ideal material for this enjoyable retrospective
