 "St Celfer deploys a kaleidoscopic assortment of varied electronic textures with associated melodic motives in a free, improvisatory fashion, recalling landmark jazz fusion and minimalist albums of the late 1960s and early 1970s such as Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew and Terry Riley’s A Rainbow in Curved Air.

Best Blips (the funkiller years):
funkiller 3+4

"dissonant and 'art,' as opposed to arty... ...had beats, but also skronky sounds resembling giant uncoiling springs overlapping in reverberating, Stockhausenlike crescendos. Also...some pretty melodies wafting into the mix" -- Tom Moody

Man From Planet Risk

"what might be called "downtempo horrorcore" (or The Music Formerly Known As Triphop--more on this below) but the live set... ...tipped the sound over from the hiphop column to rock-and-roll, a kind of minimalist psychedelic metal. ...the sound is truly trippy: keyboardist/laptopper jenghizkhan approaches music like a painter... make layers of artfully mangled sound. Imagine Ennio Morricone eclectism shot through with the kind of dreamy, smeared psychedelia of San Francisco post-punkers Chrome, or the European hardcore tech of The Mover set to a hiphop beat. But also none of the above." -- Tom Moody

!M.O.O.B He Goatan


"live improvisation with programmed sequences built up in the studio note by note.  ...has a nasty edge of pure DSP (digital signal processing), which may explain (his) popularity with the 8-Bit crowd in attendance last night. Also, his penchant for unexpected dark metal riffs popping up out of the sometimes atonal chaos of live sequencing and knob turning didn't hurt."  -- Tom Moody
