Contagious Orgasm – The Flow of Sound Without Parameter

Following up last week’s episode, we wanted to discuss an album by an artist from “Japanese/American Noise Treaty,” and we landed on Contagious Orgasm “The Flow of Sound Without Parameter” on Ground Fault. It’s a Series II CD and is as strange as it is wonderful. We love Ground Fault and we love Contagious Orgasm, so you can guess how we feel about this one. Hydrate your thirsty teeth and head out on your mission.

It’s the 25th anniversary of his first album “Hotel Paral.lel” so we take a look back at those early days, from meeting Peter Rehberg and how radical using a computer was, to his recent work and what it’s like being back in a bedroom studio. We were very grateful to get to talk to Fennesz and get a perspective from one of the stalwarts of Mego and 90s experimental computer sound.

Bob Scott, the mastermind behind Xome, took time to sit down with us to discuss his many decades in the noise world.
