Another excursion into dark and atmospheric noise from '90s Illinois project FRAGMENTED, a solo project featuring Christopher J. Falvey. Epic sonic transmutations that defy description and remain firmly rooted in a world free from suggestion and repression. Seven movements spanning more than 80 minutes, Falvey's approach is measured, subdued, and focused. Prolific in the latter half of the '90s, FRAGMENTED left us with two cassette releases and a handful of DIY CDs. It's not enough, but I will take it.

The visual presentation of these tapes is as gorgeous as the sounds they surround. Again, simplicity rules and these may have been little more than Kinko's creations, but when combined with the music the result is superb, and it's as easy to get lost in the images as in the sound.
