"Micromega is an electric guitar experiment in processing, cut-up, and real time de-instrumentation. The 180 gram splatter vinyl LP comes with a wafer USB drive containing 5.1 surround sound videos. Micromega does not waver from the unremitting stream of staggering output from Pacific 231. The two +17 minutes long audio pieces move from pulsing tides of wide-eyed warmth, to blistering and barren landscapes, and back to a reformed transcendence with the fluency and skill of a seasoned musical hand.
Pacific 231 is the moniker of Pierre Jolivet, a French born sound artist currently living in Ireland and working on his PhD in Brainwave & Sensorial Perception Research through Sound, Colour & Space: Integrating Multi-sensory output in performance. Pierre has been a formative entity in new, industrial, and post-industrial music since the early 80's."
