“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by Time Off

As you may imagine compressing all the recorded sound of the past 100-plus years would be no easy, or for that matter ‘quiet’, task. This conceptual piece is a heavy listen – deep reverb caverns are intersected with tiny clipped particles of noise. This then rolls into tiny high-pitched noise fragments that bring to mind […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by Trax

Autodigest se autodefine como una simulación de los procesos de la implosión cultural. Apoya sus teorías en el hiperconformismo de Baudrillard, y la compresión tiempo-espacio de David Harvey. Bien. En cristiano, la pretensión de Autodigest es combinar sonidos y presentar luego une enciclopedia que resuma La Existencia. Más claro aún, por si no nos hemos […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by REP

(…) Mais surpreendente, no entanto, é o primeiro volume de «A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded», outra novidade do catálogo Crónica, não por o misterioso Autodigest (quem será?) cumprir o que promete no título (é uma impossibilidade, obviamente), mas pelo nível conceptual que assiste ao presente trabalho (deliciosa, a menção de que esta música […]

Autodigest est pour moi un mystère. Très peu d’informations circulent sur ce projet. Soit je m’y prends comme un manche, soit ils sont effectivement dans des circuits assez underground. La note de presse qui accompagne ce disque n’a guère été plus loquace. Peu importe. On se concentrera sur ce disque de musique électronique pour le […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by Rif Raf

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded”? Met zo’n titel ben je oftewel een ongenaakbare geinponem of een wanhopige filosoof. In het geval van Autodigest kiezen we voor het laatste daar zijn naam staat voor de ultieme culturele implosie: zonder geboortedatum, zonder geografische referentie. Op de koop toe koketteert Autodigest graag met de theorieën van […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by A Puta da Subjectividade

Há discos que podem até valer por si só, ou seja, apenas como matéria audível com os consequentes remates opinativos; mas há muitos outros que tomam dimensões diferentes se houver uma pré-contextualização. O que seria dos “4.33” aparentemente silenciosos de Cage se não soubéssemos antecipadamente que o silêncio não existe no sentido de total ausência […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by Ikonen

Leere und Abwesenheit von musikalischer Struktur sind 2003 selten so radikal thematisiert worden wie in diesen 11 Stücken von Autodigest. Tiefer Hall wechselt zu hochfrequentem Sirren, in Phasen völliger Stille purzeln millisekundenlange Soundschnipsel, die in der Tat wie das klangliche Endprodukt gnadenloser digitaler Komprimierung erscheinen. Endgültig dominant wird dieser Eindruck ab den letzten Momenten von […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by Vital

The title of the Autodigest CD really sets me off: wouldn’t it be great to have all music ever recorded on one CD? “Autodigest is a simulation of processes of cultural implosion. As such, it has no birth date nor does it have particular geographical references”. So who is it? We are not told. Some […]

…nel quale viene vieppiù addizionato allucinatorio mulinare di matragliate noise. E se l’età e l’abitudine difficilmente ci consentono di apprezzarne a pieno gli esiti (dacché qui non si trova niente che i primi SPK, tanto per dire, non abbiano già fatto), riconosciamo anche in questo caso discreto sense of humour e volentieri porgiamo almeno l’altra […]

“A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded, Vol. 1” reviewed by Bad Alchemy

Wier wollte nicht schon immer mal A Compressed History of Everything Ever Recorded hören? Autodigest beginnt diesen geheimen Wunsch einer historizistischen Zeit wie dieser erfüllen mit Vol. 1. Der Klang der Welt auf einer kleinen Plastikscheibe, demnächst auch in Pillenform. Written and composed by jedem und keinem erkligt nahe am weißen Rauschen das klangmolekulare Chaos […]
