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
