released January 21, 2014

Drawing from archives amassed over the years 1998 to 2013 with various collaborators, Le Scrambled Debutante mastermind Allan Zane has created a 50-minute composition fusing the most disparate material from piano impromptus to unidentifiable noises. This is somic collage in the full surrealist sense, the acoustic equivalents of umbrella and sewing-machine meeting on the mixing desk to create a uniquely bizarre sonic dreamscape.
This work by Le Scrambled Debutante could truly be called surrealist music. Apparently drawing from spontaneous improvisation with spontaneously found sound objects, this trip gives the impression of letting unconscious impulses drive the sound. It is impossible, for most of the time, to tell what sound sources were used. This truly acousmatic, if lo-fi, approach emphasises the vague, dream-like quality of the sounds. The editing, however, is done with a keen sense of timing and contrast of textures, so we drift from one dream scene into the next before it gets boring (or scary). All in all, this album may be better than most actual dreams.
