which album is better? is this one more of a cold calculated concept electronic thing, they both sound pretty similar so far. Glad mark fell is getting so much attention these days. I still think his best solo work is Secular Music for Yorkshire, which is oddly not mentioned in any of these press releases.

i was thinking the same thing. the RA review of one of the upcoming albums even mentioned Ten Types as his only previous release, which is silly. i have to be in the right mood for his stuff with Joe Gilmore as Shirttrax. and his ep as h could easily be early snd. he's not done with it yet, but his upcoming CD on alku sounds (conceptually, anyway) really cool. i'm a big fan of his split cassettes w/ roc on alku as well.

After a few listens, I much prefer Multistability. The first set of songs is too similar to "Thunder..." to feel worthy of inclusion here. Having said that, Death of Loved One has to be one of the best songs he's done, maybe because it's less rigid than his usual work. Very pretty

 

Overall, this is worth having if you're a fan of Mark Fell, but it's less accessible than his other solo albums.

I like the acid parts, it makes me want to join in on the fun i think i might do an Acid in the style of Alvin Lucier

 

it is one of his most difficult solo releases for sure, very much on par with Attack on Silence in this regard. Pretty cool that he's getting a lot of press, it's rare that music that is this difficult get's so much attention

(Not having heard this I can't speak to the level of accessibility, however) i agree that it's good to see him getting so much press - i think its, in part, a byproduct of the labels he's working with - editions Mego and RN having reputations for putting out challenging but high quality music. also the fact that he's put together a body of work like he has gives people something to anchor to when writing about him in the press, which helps

I couldn't agree more, it's awesome to see him getting so much publicity. I think Mark Fell's (and SND's) star has really risen in the last few years - rightfully so, since they're producing some of the most distinctive and interesting music out there right now.

In January 2011 Mark was invited by Erik Wiegand (aka Errorsmith) to develop some presets for his new software synthesizer which he was developing for Native Instruments. After making about 40 sounds*, Mark decided to rework his UL8 project by developing the pattern generating systems used in its production, connected to the sound developed in Erik's synthesizer. The result is this double 12" single, featuring 9 tracks and a remix from Mark's friend and colleague Mat Steel.

The project ships with an A1 full colour poster. Recorded Rotherham (UK) and Sheffield (UK) March 2011. Mastered by Lupo at Dubplates and Mastering (DE) March 2011.

 

*unfortunately NI rejected all of Mark's presets and none were used for the final distribution.

      Really amazing group of artists in collaboration and/or remixing one another.  Purchase benefits a good cause.  Im excited to give it a listen and report back on my favorites
      https://crxssings.bandcamp.com/releases

      "All the funds generated by the sales of this album will be donated directly to City Plaza Hotel, a squatted refuge located in the heart of Athens, Greece, organized for and by migrants from Africa and Asia. These funds will support their struggle to provide material needs for those fleeing economic, environmental, political and military disasters in their home countries. At City Plaza Hotel residents work together in ways that center their own agency, dignity and solidarity with each other. 

      This compilation in no way claims to represent the voices of refugees and migrants, nor does it represent the scores of incredible musicians from the Middle East, North Africa or Central America whose communities are being disrupted by mass migration. Rather, the artists participating in this compilation recognize that their lives and art have benefitted from the relative ease with which they are able to move across borders, performing for international audiences and developing relationships across cultures. Some of the artists involved are the children of immigrants, or have their own experiences of migration and relocation. All of them share a belief in a basic freedom of movement and stand in solidarity with those migrants and refugees who are struggling to make a better life for their families and themselves. "
