about

Dka is proud to present "VISEX", the first release by Charlottesville-based duo Altra. Altra blends the sounds of lab equipment, modular synths, and industrial atmospheres to create a pulsing, throbbing miasma of sound. For fans of Autechre, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and Robitussin.

Altra’s Alex Christie (Leon Bison) and Travis Thatcher (Voice of Saturn) are electronic artists, instrument designers, and composers who are fascinated by interconnected electronic performance. There is no instrument that they cannot feedback and no signal that they do not reroute. Altra creates chaotic networks of electronic devices that they guide through uncharted territories, discovering semi-organic, semi-synthetic soundworlds along the way.

Drugged out 90s techno vibes meets early 2000s IDM experimentation. VISEX is a future shock modern day BBC radiophonic workshop meets Mort Garson Moog demonstration record, but only if that record was slightly melted in a microwave. It could even be a youtube demonstration of a hacked Roland MC-303 played by a robo-tripping Steve Stapelton of Nurse with Wound. A concept album like Talking Head’s “More Songs about Buildings and Food” except its about food and trash filtered through early internet computer jargons and archaic computer commands.
