Dots reviewed by Carnival_of_soles
Here's is the review as it was posted to the ambient
list June 5th, 2001:
Having just purchased Tetsu Inoue's Fragment Dots, actually rescued
it from Borders, I am inspired to review this for those who haven't
ventured to yet.
I wasn't going to buy it since I had already got Psycho-Acoustic and
disliked it VERY, VERY much. I picked it up, but decided against the
risk and replaced it on the rack. As I turned, a small voice called
out "Sissy!". I looked around but few people were in the store and
nobody was anyways near me. I looked back down and the CD, which I
had replaced near the back of the rack, was in the front (again).
So I decided that resistance was futile and bought it.
I decided that the best time to listen was when I was shaving since
my boredom is titanic then. I put on the disk and listened, I mean
Now I must tell you that I had composed a long, meandering review
full of descriptions, similes and metaphors but something didn't feel
right. I realized that such a review was better suited for his FAX
and earlier stuff: long droning, wordy passages interspersed with
little asides and comments. Totally inappropriate for this music,
to be sure!
So, in the spirit of his current music, I pasted the entire review
onto a mirror and dropped it from a second story window. Running downstairs,
I rescued several shards that had something comprehensible and here
Shard 1. My disk is wonderful, deep ambience but skips like the devil
Shard 2. His attention span seems to have shortened.
Shard 3. I wonder what one big dot would have sounded like. Or have
we already heard that before?
I hope you've enjoyed this foolishness, and if not, simply delete
and forget. If it wasn't funny, it should be ignored...
PS - Notice that I didn't even used the G-word!
