Kim Cascone - Blue Cube

Label: Noton
Year: 1999
Styles: Ambient, IDM, Glitch, Dark Ambient, Minimalism

Review: (Allmusic.com)

Kim Cascone's first release following the dissolution of his popular Heavenly Music Corporation project is also a revisiting of some of the sonic territories of his earlier work as PGR. The album began as a single track to accompany Cascone's contribution to a book of essays about computer music development platform Csound, edited by Richard Boulanger, and expanded into a full-length CD at the behest of Boulanger and others who figured he was onto something. An exploration of themes combining bleeding edge digital technology with rootings about in computer music's prehistory — Cascone used Csound to create acoustical models of early electronic instrument specs — blueCube is a musical expostulation on the "alchemical space" specific to composing with machines, and is some of his most enthralling work to date.

Hello and greetings to the founder of the Acrocosm blogspot.

Just wanted to pass along my sincere appreciation to you for taking the time to upload Kim Cascone's "Blue Cube" to your site in addition to all of the various artists that you've made available for download. It is GREATLY appreciated.

If you happen to come across Kim Cascone's other projects (notably "PGR" - I loved this span of work by him) or by Justin Broadrick (of Godflesh fame - primarily his "Techno Animal" project - I've been looking REALLY hard to find "Re-Entry" 2CD album files ANYWHERE on the Internet), please upload them. ;-)

Your reviews are spot on and insightful. Once again, thanks for taking the time to elaborate further upon the various artists, their backgrounds, and your personal imput / reviews on them. Please continue to keep up the good work and I'll check back from time to time to see what new goodies you've come across.

Peace out,

Brent, the reviews are not by the blogger but by AMG which he has gracefully acknowledged (unlike some). You're right though when you say the posts are greatly appreciated.

I can hook you up with PGR if you're still looking for it.

Excellent post but you should understand something: Forget standard radio. Browse all kinds of stations--international, hip hop, electronic, alternative, blues, death metal, soundtracks, jazz, and so on. Let them play in the background while you browse the Web, answer e-mails, etc. If you hear a song you like, write down the title, album, and artist, if possible. 23jj
