This 20-track disc collates years of Jeremy Simmonds' studio wizardry as Voafose. Simmonds, who has collaborated with Boymerang and AFX, is probably best known for 1993's Weirs, a collection of abrasive, abstract techno he recorded with Luke Vibert. Less beat-oriented than that IDM classic, Voafose delves into unsettling ambience and imaginary sci-fi soundtracks festooned with bizarre timbres, psychedelic tone ripples, warped animal cries, and BBC Radiophonic bleeps. The disc includes a few maddening collages involving pitch-shifted and chopped-up voices recorded from TV and radio that you only need to hear once. Otherwise, Voafose is a revelatory archival excavation.
