<3 is a stunning album of ‘hard code pop’ from the endlessly inventive electronic artist AtomTM. Here we find the one born Uwe Schmidt creating music alongside x1n, an AI unit which generates the sounds and language of the human voice. Unsurprisingly AtomTM’s collaborative ‘partner’ here gives the album a particularly uncanny feel - one which is heightened by the fact that AtomTM delivers soundscapes here which, while they may be easier for the listener to enter than some of Schmidt’s other music, still come close to the mind-bending electronics of Autechre and Oval. While there may be pop in <3, there is just as much glitch, IDM and computer music too.
