This CD is the reissue of the highly acclaimed (Prix Ars Electronica Winner) MiniDisc-only release from 1998, about which was said: “This is the first ever MiniDisc-only release.” (Alan Phillips, Sony Software). This Gescom Production, assembled by Manchester’s own Sean Booth, Rob Brown (Autechre) and Russell Haswell, conquered the technological restrictions inherent in the MiniDisc format. Battling against the ATRAC compression system, they succeeded in producing a masterful perambulation of sonic experimentation. 45 tracks have been sliced into 88 portions for your ease of dissemble-age. Thus the listener can loop and shuffle at will due to zero seek time. Resulting carnage. Culling together years of source material, MiniDisc is a collection of multi-styled mood music, ranging from full on hip-hop beats to shoe-gazing ambience to bangin’.
