Continuing on with my microsound tangent, the fine folks at 12k have redesigned their website and have a slew of new releases coming up in the pipeline from Frank Bretschneider and Ralph Steinbrüchel, Christopher Willits, and many others. Their sublabel, Line, also has new releases by Steve Roden and one from label head himself, Richard Chartier.

A collaboration with Ivan Pavlov, their performance of Chessmachine was undoubtedly one of the highlights of Mutek in 2004. This captures their performance from Los Angeles. A mixture of sound and strategy, it proves you can be high fallutin and artsy while still having a sense of humor about it all.

And finally, I'd like to send shout outs to Kevin McHugh and Will Calcutt.
