about

Debut cd by Chicago-based video/audio artist Ian Epps. Epps creates a playful music out of manipulated sine waves and digital artifacts. For this genre of computer glitchery, Epps has a unique sense of phrasing and timing. He introduces charming musical hooks and bats them around and tears at them until they are lost in machine-like textures and atmospherics. Fragments of the original ideas then resurface throughout the disc's 86 tracks. This is a fun and promising debut work intended to be played on shuffle.

"A Chicagoan multimedia artist, Epps has produced a set of febrile miniatures, consisting of 86 tracks spread over 46 minutes, several just a few seconds long. A good number of the tracks are based on the same source material, a playful glitched phrase. This lends a homogenous quality to his material, which has a similar listener friendliness to Oval’s. Some of it is spare and simple, but the longer tracks are thickly layered organisations of sound. For all the jerky glitch material, Epps manages to sustain a lively, cliché-free mood. His habit of breaking the episodes track by track leaves him free to repeat a phrase a few times as a distinct track rather than looping it, and by the time Audiophone has reached track 86, it has pointed the way down numerous witty and provocative pathways without outstaying its welcome."
