i8u: b Bake Records 047 2001
i8u has been a guest on WtB? twice and is an important figure on the Montreal new music scene. She deserves it. She has a clear grasp of sound and her manipulations of deep sonic material are outstanding. i8u is changing over time, and this latest offering gives us a glimpse into her new style. Bass pulses and granular, near distorted sounds throb away as i8u slowly performs some sonic tricks. I like the disc, but there’s something a bit “incomplete” about it all. As if i8u hasn’t quite got it all sorted out yet. I’m looking forward to seeing where she’s headed. I’d pick it up if you haven’t heard anything else, otherwise, hold out for what’s to come.
