Blinkhorn – Input/Output
Blippy techno from Blinkhorn on none-more-electronic-named Input/Output.
Blinkhorn is Patrick Blinkhorn from Washington DC, who’s also managing editor at Blisspop. Input / Output is his new release on Emkan records.
His range of styles includes ambient and that means whilst Input is techno it is also a reflection of that broader palette. Starts off a bit quietly this one before broadening itself out to a bunch of blippy sounds and a surprisingly sinuous groove. Beats are there but never dominate. This is robot dancing, all digital, nothing human here. Jerk along.
Output is a different proposition. A tune not prepared to go quietly. A less restrained, more experimental bent. Techno as computer symphony with an acid conductor. The blips and bloops are more dynamic and strident. If input/output is the communication between an information processing system, such as a computer, and the outside world, then Output is saying you will dance, flail if you must but move your self.
Music for the microprocessor in your life.
