Last year Public Information released 'Electronics Without Tears', a remarkable excavation of the work of lost British early electronic music innovator F.C. Judd. Now they've asked contemporary musicians to provide their own takes on his pioneering work.
The results of this are always interesting, often incredible. Holly Herndon's dark and bristling "Control Sample" is a thick and clawing beast, while Leyland Kirby provides immersive, windswept electronics while Bandshell delivers something startlingly weighty and blistering. There are quieter moments too, like the gentle and sparse "Space Judder" from The Boats, electronic twinkles bathed in warm noise and scattered beats and Pye Corner Audio's "Splice Block" is ghostly and deeply subtle.
It's a collection that both highlights Judd's idiosyncratic creativity and gives a carefully selected group of modern experimenters some great source material to get stuck into. A great document that celebrates both Judd and the here and now.
