Amoeba Review

Andrew Scott, Hollywood 01/31/2013

You'd think that having your music selected by Carl Sagan to be included in the Voyager Space Craft would provide an artist with a degree of visibility but unfortunately Laurie Spiegel had to wait until one of her tracks was used in the Hunger Games movie before payday arrived. Early generative computer music that's only about, oh say, 30 years ahead of its time. When everyone gets sick of listening to 3rd-generation John Carpenter rip-offs (any day now, please?) this will be waiting for them. There is a repress coming soon, but get the 2xCD version because it comes with a wealth of extra material, the quality of which sometimes surpasses the original LP. A systems-music classic for addled late-night adventures.
