Quiet Shutter by Chris Randall published on 2010/11/11 23:54:55 +0000 Capacitor is the second installment in the three EP "Electronics" series, and the 9th overall Micronaut release. These three EPs explore angular musical themes, with multi-octave melodies juxtaposed against non-traditional beat structures. For the gearspotting enthusiast, this EP (like Resistor before it and Transformer to follow) is built almost entirely from hardware synths and drum machines. The occasional guitar line or piano plink comes through, but the vast majority of the sound generation is via Chris Randall's eccentric collection of vintage and new synthesizers and drum machines. More varied and aggressive in theme than its predecessor, Capacitor's aim is to ease the listener from the relative peacefulness of Resistor in to the hyperprogramming of Transformer.
