As a reformed FS-70 pedalboard pusher with a penchant for patterned jumpers in every shade of Tron, the music of Wendy Carlos (with Rachel Elkind on production duties, it should be noted) has been intrinsically linked to everything I grew up with and loved in the realm of music and film. With its complex artistry, encompassing dystopian dread and majestic Moog, her work defies the conventions of what electronic, and indeed classical music, can be. Most notably, through the release of ‘Switched On Bach’, her revolutionary compositions made the science of sound accessible enough to kickstart the entire electronic music genre and to free it from the tyranny of musical elitism and a boring traditionalist superiority with regard to “proper” instruments, elevating the synthesizer to an artform in its own right.

Great record. wears it's influences proudly ..but retains a sliver of identity that is uniquely British and has a northern feel to it..I think that these geographic musical vignettes are realy evocotive of northern Newtown Uber estates and satellite communities..I hope this translates to a wider audience for him...he deserves the attention. give him his due .NOW . christopherogley
