I sing the music electric


"Why are so many people trying to make natural sources behave like machines and machines like humans? Why, for example, has a group called Alarm Will Sound done elaborate acoustic copies of music by Aphex Twin?"

In the June 30th edition of the Globe and Mail, novelist Russell Smith looks at a few examples of what he calls "acoustic/electronic rivalry."

Some examples of the music he mentions:

Alarm Will Sound - Aphex Twin - Four.mp3 (the Alarm Will Sound homepage)

Cloud Harp- Experimental.mp3 (The CloudHarp homepage)

The User - Control to Efficiency.mp3 (The User homepage)
