A remix/reinvention of Brooks’ MUSIC FOR DIETER RAMS, a radiophonic marvel in which every single note and sound was sourced from the Dieter Rams-designed Braun AB-30 alarm clock. It was a fascinating bit of work, but RECONSTRUCTIONS is more my speed – reconfiguring the original piece as a 21-minute long motorik ride-out into a very beautifully designed aether. The redoubtable Head Technician of Pye Corner Audio gives it some proper kosmische on the accompanying piece. Stream it here, or click through and buy for four quid. Splendid.
