Artist: VIDA, BEN & GREG DAVIS
Title: Working Models
Format: LP
Label: Los Discos Enfantasmes
Country: Canada
Price: $24.00
160g Vinyl, die cut jacket. "Two expansive compositions in compact form evolved from sinuous convolutions 
of electrical currents conducted through an intersection of Ben Vida and Greg Davis.  
Recorded, assembled and mixed in Brooklyn, NY and Burlington VT from 
September to June 2012, with both parties intervening on modular synthesizer 
and computer. 
Working Model 1 is a nodal piece, likened to a string of pearls, with each 
pearl being a chamber within which a sound environment is revealed, developed 
and transitioned to the next node seamlessly through gesture, rupture, and rhythm 
changes. Moments of stochastic synthesis, chromatic interrupters firing, globular 
pulsations, short lived melodic lines, and rhythmic arrangements keep the piece 
moving and the ear engaged at the micro level. The flip side, Working Models 2 
has more of an unearthly feel to it with interwoven frequencies giving way to 
percussive structures, granular textures, and layers of synthesis that propel the 
piece through its different movements.  
Feast your ears and eyes on excerpts from the LP, with visuals by Charles Barabé." - Los Discos Enfantasmes.
