Artist: OMIT
Title: Rejector
Format: CD
Label: Anomalous
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"This is the first American CD release by veteran New Zealand artist Omit. Previously he has had three compact disc releases on the prestigious New Zealand label Corpus Hermeticum. Patterned after the paranoid electronics of Klaus Schulzes Cyborg, Omit tinkers with outdated synthesizers, delay pedals and tape loops to shape plastic signal patterns and oblique modulations to evoke sprawling voids of nightmarish emptiness. Sublime wooden rhythms and unsettling, textured scrapes sporadically appear in the synthetic wash, suggesting that Williams has encountered the higher profile electronica of Alva Noto. Such parallels are purely coincidental, but Omit deserves a broader audience." - Anomalous.

Title: Interceptor
Format: Double CD
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"OMIT is the nom de plume of New Zealand electronic musician CLINTON WILLIAMS, whose homespun constructs detour from the sculpted grit and mottled distortion found in the work of his countrymen and-women. His masterful Quad 3xCD opus (Corpus Hermeticum, 1998) makes palpable the artists contentious argument with his own unwieldy mousetrap of tape-loops, modular electronics, effects pedals, drum machines, and the creaking sounds of his house. Interceptor is the result of an experiment with a portable studio outside his longtime home of Blenheim. With two suitcases of drum machines, effects, and analog synths, Williams recalls being "pissed off with myself wasting time recording this stuff when I was trying to find a job." His frustrations stripped away much of the grandiose sweeps of ambience and shadow, leaving behind a life-support system grid of overlapping, phase-shifted blip and click. An undertow of hypnotic tonalities pulls those rhythms toward a crepuscular gloom. Williams has always been at odds with his own work, yet his self-doubt continues to deliver magnificent albums which thrive in a symbiotic struggle with mechanical disintegration."-Helen Scarsdale

Title: Tracer
Format: Double CD
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Obsessive electronic composer CLINTON WILLIAMS returns with a new album recorded under his OMIT moniker. As with all of his previous work, Tracer is an antiquated behemoth, constructed from analogue synthesizers, primitive drum machines, homespun electronics, and numerous effects pedals. Simple wooden rhythms trot, trudge, and even glide along taut metric grids hot-wired with bursts of mechanical splutter and the occasional creak from Pierre Henrys wooden door. An occasionally menacing, but more often melancholic orchestration of synthetic tones ripple, flex, and dissolve across the uniform structuralism, creating an ecstatic paranoia rarely heard with such splendor, rigor, and sublime blackness. If sonic references are required, then the Klaus Schulze masterpiece Cyborg remains the closest analogy to what may be found in Tracer." - Helen Scarsdale Agency .
