A tale of transhumanism - the only logical union of body and machine, and beyond - told through the fusion of two classic langurages of electronic music: synths and chiptunes. Pounding beats, ethereal, lyricsal ambients, whimsical melodies, some intriguing track titles -- and a lo-fi sampled evil laughter. What more can you ask for? If your human body is hungry for more, though, also pick up Labyrinth, Monomer's next album.
Favorite track: Better Living Through Dysgenics.
This song Deletion...such an awesome tune that has emotion woven right into it. I am curious, would it be too much to ask for a remix of this song that is more like the slower first half? that first half of the song is downright sick! it's just once the song changes tempo, the whole attitude of the piece changes. If it's possible, that would be too sick!
Quite Operational is the result of a fascination with the sound and aesthetic of 80s electronic music and science fiction, combined with a healthy love of chipmusic and old video game sounds. While not written with a tracker or on a Gameboy, it was a personal exercise in setting my own limitations and sound palette and seeing where I could go; what imagery I could evoke and where I could take the listener. Above all else, it was an attempt to write something exciting that sounds distinctly my own. It was a freaking blast to create, and I hope you all enjoy taking this trip as much as I did writing it. Cheers!
