Download / Limited Edition Cassette available on Bandcamp So begins the first album by Anglo-Welsh avant-gardists GGLEC. Its maelstrom of surface noise, throbbing drones, linguistic miscommunication and computational error continues with a scratchy vinyl sample from a 1962 record teaching the international Morse code – a long-passed American male voice informs us.. “Those who know code have a peculiar and often invaluable ability to communicate. Especially in time of war or other serious emergency the need for code takes on an added significance…" Amidst CV controlled tape hiss and acousmatic sound design, avant-bard Rhys Trimble’s visionary and fractured poetics strive to articulate the tensions of the contemporary experience in a failing miasma of dysfunctional communication technologies. The response to the historicised call for the need for code is rendered throughout the remainder of the 40 minutes – cultural and technologised code-making / breaking.
