Signal member Carsten Nicolai is something of a sound engineer under his Alva Noto moniker. Relying heavily on precise hooks and loops, Nicolai produces with sequencers, then uses mathematics to give each track a precise, intentionally off-beat rhythmic structure, rendering each and every sound of any given cut a necessity. This track finds vocalist Anne-James Chaton reciting the numerical sequence of The Golden Ratio concept over fractured electronics. Sound-wise, It’s sort of the aural equivalent to an epileptic seizure inducing light show.
