Kim Cascone was the founder and sole proprietor of the Heavenly Music Corporation, the celestial-ambient concern/house band of his Silent Records label. He dissolved HMC to concentrate on Hollywood sound design but has since reawakened to the musical potential of computer-coded sound. Cascone's subsequent recordings have marked a significantly high-tech return to the spatial experiments of his early Poison Gas Research (PGR) project.
CATHODEFLOWER--a title that evokes the ghostly afterimages burnt into a monitor or television screen--is the second installment in a triptych inspired by the capabilities of CSound, a sound-synthesis programming language. Cascone uses CSound to erase all but the faintest trace of a synthesized pulse. The process, which he has termed "residualism," leaves behind only a faint, halo-like signal and motes of glinting, glitch-like debris to mark an excised sound's presence. Though CATHODEFLOWER is music wrought from the residue of music, Cascone's plasmic ambience is so carefully produced as to give illusive emotional substance to atomized data. The percolating code of "NullDrift" seems restless, while "nb2e_vortex" and "vortexShedding (Simplex)" drift with an aching internal emptiness almost heartrending in its passion.
