BULLEN, NICOLAS - COMPONENT FIXATIONS (LP)


"Long-awaited solo debut from Napalm Death founding member Nicholas Bullen. Intricate electronic pieces and manipulated field recordings influenced by early electronic experiments. A key figure in Birmingham's experimental scene, Bullen was also a founder member of Scorn. Taking influence from the early electronic artists of the 1960s Bullen has fused this passion with his own musically explorative past, resulting in an album of beguiling tape-manipulations, drones and noise. Component Fixations is far more than a simple exercise in academic sound, and Bullen has injected his long-form pieces with a rare mortal sense of corruption and failure. Every single sound on the album was taken from field recordings captured in the confines of Bullen's house and garden, and this only serves to confirm the unshakable humanity of the record. Component Fixations might be a long way from 'Scum', but dig deep and you'll find the same curious mind, desperate to pull apart sounds and give them a brand new meaning. Extreme doesn't have to mean loud, after all." (label info)
