Sleeve Notes from Robotika
A scintillating disco-mix of electromagnetic beats, machine-tooled melodies and cybernetic tones, Robotika is the latest release from pioneering producer Ray Alto. Inspired by a series of mysterious posts and sound files discovered in some of the obscure corners of the Internet, Alto has used the latest studio technology to reconstruct what he describes as messages transmitted from a robot somewhere in the future.
‘I’m not sure exactly where Victor is,’ Ray Alto explains. ‘In fact I’m not even sure whether Victor knows precisely where he is either. Some of his posts have turned up on some highly restricted sites not usually accessible to the public. All I know is that he’s out there, and that he’s coming in loud and clear over the wires. All you have to do is listen.’
In order to make Victor’s communications easier to understand, Alto has used modern recording techniques to create ‘Electrophonic’ transcripts of the robot’s words and feelings. ‘This is the 21st century,’ observes Alto. ‘People today only believe what they can hear for themselves.’
As Ray Alto says, all you have to do is listen.
