Quick Overview

The sound collages on Data Rape were created using 8 human voice synthesizers, originally marketed as "Speak and Spell" toys by Texas Instruments in the '70's. These instruments have been customized with added switches, buttons, knobs and wiring to give phoneme looping, random phase generation, various modulations, pitch shifting and other non-standard effects.

This process, called circuit bending, exploits the inherent instabilities in the circuitry of audio toys, radios and other sound making instruments by sending electronic signals and data to and from previously unrelated circuit board points giving unique, unpredictable and highly unusual sounds.

The results are simply unlike anything else you will have heard, creating an incredible album of atonal wonder and spell binding intoxication.
