ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
RollingStone.com reviewed: "Millenium Bug" & "AOHELL" 10/20/99:"Thomas Dolbymeets Japan, Listening to this particular track took me back to MY early 20's. (1980ish) A very interesting track which seems to have the musical influences of Japan (an80's English new romantics group) and Thomas Dolby (also an 80's English artistwho's music was very electronic) Millenium Bug has a "nice sound" and comands youto listen to the end of the track (unlike AOHELL). More like this andwe will see lotmore of this group. (liked it lots)." -Chris Leach

Listen.com reviews 10/99: "Piercing guitars, distorted vocals, nasty beat explosions,and varied synth textures combine in unpredictable ways and become amorphousmusical puzzles." Kalamazoo Express Weekly 3/23/00 "Revolt On The Internet" Localhigh-tech musician Erik Revolt's stage exists in the nebulous realm of cyberspace byLem Montero The internet has changed the business forever.

If done right, musicians could market their art across the world with a click of amouse. A track produced in Kalamazoo could wind up on a dance floor in Scotland. Infact that has happened. Erik Revolt has launched his music into cyberspaceand it'slanding on all four corners. Working in his basement studio, Erik speaks into amicrophone attached to his Macintosh. He glides the mouse around and his recordedvoice shows on the screen as a graph. Erik quickly selects the portion of the graph heknows he doesn't want and deletes it. What remains he plans on using as a sample forhis music.
He dips the graph through a battery of other programs where he applies filters, adjustswavelengths and tweaks out the sound until he's happy with it.

The sample becomesanother layer in his music. The results of his digital handiwork can be heard onmp3.com/murderbymodem. It's a hard-hitting Nine Inch Nail's sound with metallicvocals, popping drums, and a swirls of sounds that grips the listeners by the throat.Editing and producing sound on computers isn't a shocking new revelation. Much ofthe high end software can cost tens of thousands of dollars and require a computerbrimming with memory. Erik enters on the other end of the spectrum. With acomparatively dated computer and software that's easily avilable to most budgets, heput together a full length CD. While the quality of sound produced by using moreeconomical software obviously differs from the sound and control of higher endprograms.

But Erik manages to produce tracks good enough to have been downloaded by severaldance clubs and incorporated into their mixes. From Detroit to Dublin, his high-techmusic rattles dancers in a very primitive manner. Erik records his music directly intohis computer. Ben Knowlton occasionally helps out by adding synth drums andrhythms. The rest is done by Erik and his digital imagination. "I'm trying to makesomething happen where I do whatever it takes to see what was up in my head andmake it real," Erik's nearly whispered voice says rhythmically.

Turning a recordingpiece of music into a mp3 isn't as complicated as one might expect. The computer tobe used requires sound input jacks. Many computers come with simple software thatallow recordings to be made through these jacks. Once the track is recorded into thecomputer as an audio file, turning the file into an mp3 requires very little time. "Iusually use a program called Audio Catalyst," Erik casually looks at his computerscreen. "it's free off the internet, you just have to pay a license fee.
