Lina Allemano's Titanium Riot - [second piece]

Compared to the front half of this double header with the Lina Allemano Four, this excursion with her sci-fi electronic voyager unit felt bursting with new ideas. Perhaps that's no surprise given that the group has spend more time together recently, touring through Europe at the end of last year. It also gives more space for Allemano to explore DIY extended techniques and lo-fi electroacoustic gestures, such as the shortbread tin echo chamber deployed on this piece. There's some nifty bass playing at the end here with some sort of distorted harmonizer effect from Rob Clutton, and as always, imaginative analog synth textures from from Ryan Driver.
