Album Notes
James Spitznagel and Trevor Pinch comprise the duo known as The Electric Golem. They create generative, modern psychedelic mindscapes thanks to Pinch’s command of his Moog Prodigy, MiniMoog and DIY modular synths, and Spitznagel’s use of instruments like the Evolver, Mopho, Tenori-on, Nintendo DSi, iPod and iPad. During his daylight hours, Pinch is Professor of Science and Technology Studies and Professor of Sociology at Cornell University, and the coauthor of perhaps the definitive book on synthesizer technology, "Analog Days: The Invention and Impact of the Moog Synthesizer". Spitznagel is a true techno-polyglot, a digital computer artist, photographer, and sonic provocateur who has released all manners of twisted electronica, and continues to raise the bar for circuit-based music as he craftily wrestles with the vagaries of tone, glitch, frequency, and pulsation.

Two tracks on this album feature Annie Lewandowski (a.k.a. powerdove). Annie adds accordion and no-input mixer.
