Aphex Twin-Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt. 2

Aphex Twin has returned just off the heels of his Grammy nominated album Syro with an album titled Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt. 2. Is this title a metaphor or some other innuendo about Electronica? Nope, this album was actually made by computers playing instruments that were built by the artist. The overall vibe is a Minimal Jazz sound with a good dose of piano, drums and bass in the music. Overall the sound is decent but not novel or groundbreaking. Similar to Squarpusher and Z-Machines Music For Robots, you still need a human touch to make great music.

Tracks: All Good
