Fake Humans - [excerpt]

Full review to follow. Leading off the first show at the wonderful new Ratio was this duo of Carl Didur and Colin Fisher. As usual, Didur sat on the floor over his keyboards, while Fisher played a synth that ran through the redoubtable effects chain normally used by his guitar. There were some points that didn't mesh so much as combine menacingly in a sawtooth attack pattern, but some stretches — like the one heard here — cohered in a sort of avant-horror soundtrack that had the feeling of something you'd hear when the evil scientist's lair (and unspeakable experiments) were revealed. Behold... the fake humans.... and beware!
