Bill Horist & K.K. Null — Interstellar Chemistry
(Beta-lactam Ring mt037, 2002, CD)

by Henry Schneider, Published 2002-12-31

Interstellar Chemistry Cover artInterstellar Chemisty is an intriguing title conjuring up kinds of images exploding galaxies, traveling at the speed of light, along the lines of the trip in 2001. However, this is not the case. A better description of Interstellar Chemisty is syncopated pandemonium. Interstellar Chemistry is a collaboration by Bill Horist from Southern Michigan and K.K. Null from Japan. There are all kinds of cool and interesting things going on in this music: noise, strange electronic bubblings, a demented telegrapher, screeches, fast beats, alien voices, pseudo-short wave transmissions, etc. The longer you listen, the more you realize that this is cosmic music. But if you were expecting Teutonic electronics like early Schulze and Tangerine Dream, think again. Interstellar Chemistry is the cosmic music of the new millennium.
