Wowzer! My music has been reviewed by this Italian webzine - they contacted me via my Myspace page towards the end of last year and asked if I could send them some CDs and I'd pretty much forgotten about them until today. I put the text through a free web page translator and this is what came out: In reality the Londoner Howard is a poivalente man from the artistic point of view, being he veteran from underground cinematographic experiments united to realizations video is in the producer role that entertainer. These two EPs that I have chosen to join in an only book review are the result of the musical exercise called Non-Bio, undertaken individually from Howard in the within of the sort minimal-electro/industrial experience them. It fires both to you from label the Mrs Vee Recordings the jobs listens to you are proposed which crocevia between two different aspects, often complementary, that they characterize the avanguardistico universe, that is the associations of visuals mediated us to a sound-system cold and typically evocative whose joint actions upgrade vicendevolmente are the observed images that the proposed sonic structures. The figurative art of the repertorio Non-Bio is conceived like a disc of a valve concatenation photograms, sovente in modality black & white, immortalant the empty architectonic, contemporary and antichi details, natural visions of androids, scenes interprets from glacial eyes and mind to you, beyond to one succession of decadent allegorie industrial colme of neo-simbolismo. Deepening the analysis turned to the two EPs, I begin with the description of the debut of five traces titolato "Pillar Of Salt" that offers esangue the particle "Travellator at first", an alienor assemblage between synth and filtered percussività, to which the subentra equally minibadly "Mutoid Man", trace from robotike the vocal incitations encircled from essential pulsations electro-industrial. "Telomere (part I)" diffuses attenuated to ritmiche jolt and rough propagations of keyboard, concepts that prolonged in the correspondent "Telomere (part II)", anch'essa left orchestrated from a velenifero synthetismo and ossuto. Omonima "the Pillar Of Salt" canalizes a corollario of sounds and melodie from the polar, dry touch, united to inespressivi flashes of voice on brumo filterings of synth that they conclude the race of the first one EP. E' hour the turn of "Megacube", that is the more recent production of the discografia Non-Bio: in this action the sonorous constructions endure one dynamics variation for how much also concern antimelodico dance ritmica mobility that becomes supported very more and remaining surrounded from background and in many features cruel. "Megacube" is also the first episode of the track-list that it turns to I listen to a circular module of programming, loops vocal and electronic interferences, therefore as the successive "Zen Spiders" emits disc of a valve, ipnotiche big waves of opaque and vaguely orientaleggiante sound percosso from an anemic one e-drumming. "Tomorrow's Another Day" nearly preprefers solutions drum'n'bass played arpeggios from one rindondante scale of agreements supported minimalmente from the synth. More corposa, "Polybius", final, integral to the sound ulterior electronic, ritmica trace releasing and sibili elaborations of sequenziata voice. The conceived approach with the mu sica from Non-Bio is a singular experience living entire combining, like was an only sensor, the visual and auditory apparatus the inscindibile dialogue between the images gushed from the inventiveness of Howard and the sonorità from he created irretisce and engages the mind, suggestiona and fascinates the fantasy. To exclusive use of the post-modernista microcosm. -|-|-" Acoustic micrometric animated from video-illustrations, electronic strategies minimalmente realized with sobrità but to the same moment complex and tortuose. Non-Bio demands a public erudite, inclined to the esperienziale musicalità and equipped of flexible mind in order to interiorize fully the messages it communicates to you. La colonna sonora per sogni avveniristici. I'm still scratching my head trying to work out what this translation means! Does anybody speak Italian out there who is willing to help? There's a pint in it for you?
