They did not finish what they started in the eighties... it seems. I sometimes have a hard time understanding why people try to recreate history, be it barock music played on original instruments or - yes - eighties synth sounds. But the fascination in Carpenter Brut is so big it transcends.
A very ambitious work, combining classic electronic ambient with voice, real world sounds, rhythm and a story-line that is finely mediated by musical means. I find it very fascinating, and see a lot of potential in the approach.
In the spirit of modern cinema - a sequel to the album 2145. The artist is still exploring the possibilities of this quasi- program music, and with fascinating progress. On this album especially in the use of classic harmonics inspired by b-movie, generic millenium-rock and muzak.
