‘Acid In The Style Of David Tudor’ is Florian Hecker’s first full length studio (as opposed to collections
and commissions for art installations) album since 2003, when the groundbreaking ‘Sun Pandämonium’
was unleashed by Mego. Since then he has collaborated on audio projects with Yasunao Tone, Russell
Haswell (as Haswell & Hecker) and a forthcoming live collaboration with Richard James as well a myriad
of sound installation works, individually and with numerous artists worldwide.
As the title suggests this album is referencing the parallel universes of modern 20th century composition
and hedonistic rave culture. A challenging but ultimately rewarding set of Electronic Music compositions
which push these two reference points into unknown areas.
Set in apparent contrast are the sequence of six pieces Acid In The Style of David Tudor, where hyperchaotic
functions are inherently coupled to their sources of manipulation - a Buchla modular synthesizer
in combination with a Comdyna analog computer - in opposition to the ASA pieces, fruit of a complex
manipulation of distinct auditory patterns into a new acoustic whole. The closing Ten opens with an intense
head related localization blur. Here, virtual binaural, stereophonic, biphonic and monaural sound
reproduction coexist. All three approaches are displayed into a contrasting dynamics, where non- linear
waveforms and psychoacoustic illusions that constantly push our perceptual and representational fabrics.
Following the ideas of Robin Mackay, Hecker’s work reinstanciates the genetic ofness, once proposed
by philosopher David Kaplan, cutting both genetic and cultural territories of hearing.
