More Info

"So far the name Nym popped up twice in Vital Weekly and I had no idea who he is, but from a review found on the Attenuation Circuit website it seems (but is it reliable?) that behind name we find labelboss Sascha Stadlmeier, but then anoNYMous, which makes it odd when I reviewed the release Nym did with Gerald Fiebig and Emerge; the latter also being a name used by Stadlmeier (hence me asking about the truth about that claim). The music is a re-issue of two earlier pieces, and everything is 'untitled' here, nothing for the release itself and for the two pieces. I don't think I would have guessed Stadlemeier is behind this but with the newly acquired knowledge it is perhaps not odd to see. Throughout these two long pieces samples play an important role, just like with Emerge, but everything has become denser and closer together, maybe because of an even more extended use of delay and reverb units. The first piece, clocking in at thirty-one minutes has a great industrial music feel to it of machine like sounds, situated in a great hall, and the microphone is moved slowly around to catch various mechanics humming together and new configurations arise, a new dialogue arise out of the fog. The second piece is a bit louder and more obscure; at times perhaps a bit too loud, just on the edge of distortion. There is an aspect of collage in this piece, which makes it a bit chaotic for my taste, though it was not bad; it is just that the other one seemed more captivating for my taste." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
