Various Artists Project Bicycle
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Ache
The people at Vancouver's Ache label know how to make sense of chopped-up, fragmented, and rare sound samples. They showcase some of the most complex noise compositions this side of Merzbow. Project Bicycle finds artists from around the world transforming and individualizing the same sample-the sound of the almighty bicycle. With tracks from Jason Forrest, Greg Davis, and Ache's own Secret Mommy, this compilation sparks through honking horns, spindling sprockets, and chiming bells that could annoy even the most obnoxious messenger. Complete with an essay on the historical and societal virtues of our two-wheeled friend, this is one charming ode to freewheelin'.
