At first, there is silence. Then a single, isolated sound. Then silence. You become aware of the sounds surrounding you and think “Oh, AMT is making me do what Cage had in mind when he wrote 4’33’.’. Only very gradually, a surging tone emerges, a barely audible vibration at first, and then, eventually, a throbbing assemblage of mechanical, machine-like sounds. Eventually, you are surprised that so much has happened in just 24 minutes. Your experience of time has changed.

Artificial Memory Trace considers “Vibrunami Wave,” composed in 1996, a prequel to his album “Eclats sur la surface du temps” with material from the mid-90s. The title translates as “Cracks on the surface of time,” and this is very much what this track is also about. AMT uses field recordings of some sort or other, but the artistic richness of the track lies in the fact that they are not “concrete” and referential, but used in a musical way. This effect is often reached by processing the recordings with various effects, but in this case cutting them up and interlacing them with silence does the job. A minimal operation with great results!
