Staalplaat is proud to present the tenth release in their "material series", this one by Heimir Bjorgulfsson. Now what is the "material series"? A series of CD's with microscopic, microwave, glitch, click or whatever it is called music. All CD's are packed in jewel cases with no printwork. All information is etched on the CD box itself. Inside special material is housed, like, in this case wallpaper. The CD itself is a so-called AB CD: a small ring with music, and the outside of the CD fully transparant. New solo CD by Heimir Bjorgulfsson, who makes up one third of the Icelandic trio Stilluppsteypa, with a special guest appearance by American sound artist John Hudak. Continuing where left off from his last year "discreet journey digitalis" on Ritornell. "machine natura(an interpretation inconsistent with the actuality of a situation)" contains two different worlds spinning into each other, the digitally generated sound and various natural
field recordings, still sounding like neither. A somewhat man made mechanical phenomenon.
