On Repeat: Oh Astro, “Journey To The Center”

Post Author:

This track falls somewhere between Steve Reich's heady repetition and deep druggy house music. But we have no idea what names to drop for this one. “Jane Dowe”, one half of the married duo with Hank Hofler, designs her own voice-manipulation software and cites Christopher Penrose as a “long-time mentor.” Penrose is a post-modern computermusic composer at Princeton. Yikes. It'd be nice to know what's behind all the fractal textures spitting from these thumping numbers, but maybe just download Penrose's software and get back to us.
