CCTK Music combines Gabriella Isaac’s exploitative use of laptop as feedback loop / sound source / physical device and James Fella’s electro-acoustic / tape as instrument approach. The duo incorporates each other’s material in real time (on Side A), cutting the content onto 6 singles-sided reference lacquers. The lacquers were used to assemble a collage in a performance setting in late 2019, and again in a studio setting for Side B. The result is a record that is both scathing but at times harmonious, scattered, and dense but with enough air for the individual contributions to still have room to breathe. Mastered by John Wiese.
