Akira Rabelais - Elongated Pentagonal Pyramid

From Allmusic.com : "In this computer music release of a very reduced and refined aesthetic, Ahira Rabelais works with very small sounds to create tranquil click-laden soundscapes. As this label is known for producing some of the more extreme diversions in post-electronic music, this CD sits well on the roster alongside Christophe Charles and Achim Wollscheid. While at times almost inaudible, the micro-sound modulations and active use of the stereo field bring to mind the pin-dropping sound of Bernhard Gunter. While the sounds are laced with the gritty pixelated textures of computer bit-crushing, Elongated Pentagonal Pyramid can be a somewhat stale and scientific listen. But, in an admirable fashion, the composer is restrained and never quite lets the computer take over, maintaining a patient and controlled method that keeps this far from being indulgent. Fans of both ambient and academic computer music will find the CD fascinating, a controlled and minimal sound world that remains compelling throughout."

"Elongated Pentagonal Pyramid" was released by Ritornell in 1999.
