Debut release on the Onoma Ikutaro label by When The Machines Could Speak. In their own words: "For our first release we wanted to create a sound inspired by classic European analog electronic music ... but heard through a contemporary filter. We mixed classic electronic instrumentation of the 70s and 80s (VCSIII, Wasp, Arp, 909, 303, ZX Spectrum!) with modern hardware (OP-1, Eurorack modular, KOMA), plug-in instruments (NI/Arturia/D16/Rhythmic Robot) and DAW effects."

"In keeping with the music we've created a film from processed video loops largely taken from assorted IBM/ICL/Honeywell promotional films from the 1970s."

You can watch the video on YouTube. [Search "when the machines could speak" as Bandcamp no longer seems to allow direct links.]
