Tim Walters: Austerity Measures

Tim Walters (Circular Firing Squad, Usufruct) created this album with two small analog synths and some old SuperCollider coding. The result is ten standard-length pieces which fizz, stammer, belch, crackle, and sometimes sound like they’re short circuiting so much that the studio’s about to burn down. There’s a strange, non-linear rhythm to some moments, but it’s more prone to sudden explosions and spasms. Super tense and abrasive, with a constant push-pull and seemingly no end game. It’s pretty fun and exciting. It’s sort of like a more electro-shocked version of an early electro-acoustic work, but it’s not quite anarchist enough to be a “noise” album. Regardless, it’ll definitely keep you up at night. Name-your-price download at Bandcamp.
