    Available from Experimedia.net. UK-based artist and electronic musician Mark Fell presents Periodic Orbits Of A Dynamic System Related To A Knot, released on Editions Mego. The music here came about in various ways -- one section is an outtake from my recent Multistablity (R-N 125CD) album and is reworked here, another began as a quadraphonic piece composed for and performed at 'Supersimetria: New Languages In Computer Music' (curated by Anna Ramos and Roc Jiménez de Cisneros in Barcelona 2011), others were taken from live versions of previously-released and unreleased tracks. The idea was to bring these together in an 'almost-live-album' format. The album features three presets taken from Yamaha's four operator frequency modulation synthesizers of the late 1980s -- JazzOrg, LatelyBass and Rich Strg #3 -- modified to produce numerous descendants. The project was entirely written, mixed, and edited with MIDI. No audio recordings were present, with the following exceptions: the sound of a Mac Mini failing to mount a DVD, recorded with the internal microphone on a MacBook Pro (this provided a rhythmic template for the patterns that follow it); and a short section of Pi Saw flute played by Jan Hendrickse. The project was written in transit during a house and studio move, and exclusively produced using the internal speakers on a MacBook Pro. Due to time constraints, the mastering session with Lupo at Dubplates and Mastering was unattended. The cover image is of my partner's arm after cutting the pampas grass in our front garden in preparation for the house's new occupier. Thanks to Paul Emery for early advice and comments about the structure of this album, Jan Hendrickse for Pi Saw flute, Lupo at Dubplates and Mastering, and finally Peter Rehberg for his support of this project. --Mark Fell
