VOLT PER OCTAVES, THE: Via Human Error: CD

Jan 22, 2011

By the looks of the cover art and the lyrics of one of the tunes, it appears this group is a family affair with a few special guests, including Parliament/Funkadelic’s Bernie Worrell joining in the fun. What you get here is mostly instrumental synth stuff that’s often spacey and occasionally funky. Was intrigued enough by one of the instruments utilized, the Korg DS-10, to look in to see what it was. Turns out it’s a full-blown synthesizer application you can get for the Nintendo DS game that offers the potential for making some interesting noise, and it appears these folk are making good use of it. Fuggin’ technology, man.
