This was the first in a planned (but since cancelled) trip-
tych of 3" CDs by Birmingham-born and London/Warsaw-
based Lee Gamble. Consisting of seven ‘virtual-hybrid
models of spontaneous and ordered (non-essential goal)
related celomund O!I!O’, these computer compositions
are culled from live and studio recordings made between
1999 and 2006.

His entertaining, eventful debut digitally reconstitutes existing
recordings into seven brief electroacoustic compositions, which
playfully bounce and jump–cut from shifting layers of sibilant
frequencies to fractal pitch-mangling to busy, boinging barrages
of all manner of random sound.

I must admit that, after almost 40 years of listening to sounds
of every conceivable species, there are still records that leave
me at a loss for words. Enter Lee Gamble, author of ‘seven virtual-
hybrid models of spontaneous and ordered (non essential goal)
related Celomund O!I!O! computer audio compositions’ (of course,
Lee, I trust you). Comprised of little more than 19 minutes —
it’s a 3-inch, folks — there are more abrupt changes, sudden
discharges, alien burps and ultra-short complex melodies here
than in the zapped circuit of an electronic pinball machine.
Fizzing white noise, extreme panning and continuously morphing
timbres — which could have been conceived either by a mad
scientist or a deranged dentist — are featured in this (unfortunately)
short briefing about the best of what computer music has to offer
nowadays. Could have been released only by Entr’acte, the only
label whose record covers must be scissor-sliced to access the
content. Incidentally, there’s still someone around talking about
‘seven notes’.
