"Pretty great albeit confusing new CD by Mssr. Bryant, he of MEV and the Space Guitar, once again in fact eschewing said guitar and utilizing what appears to be some recordings of thunderstorms followed by some wonderfully primitive electronics. Like the title says this seems to be a meditation on Darwinism on the cellular level, all of the squishy and gurgly electronics mirroring (perhaps) the soundtrack of the alleged primordial ooze, and given that premise and the pedigree of the man behind the curtain, how can you go wrong? Easily the best music concerning microbes since the Incredible String Bands A Very Cellular Song. In addition its packaged with a wonderful broadsheet exhorting the virtues of phonetic spelling and mandatory organic chemistry classes for all. Still confused? Alans track listing might illuminate things: 1. Intence THUNDR! - a real storm this x! (time) 2. bbLg: N7 benz C6 intu amino n nucleic asidz (RNA)bacTria, vyRs, plants (procaryotes). 3.

Title: Space Tecno
Format: CD
Label: IRML
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
Solo electronics from the ex-member of MEV. Primitive xerox sleeve in jewel case, ala previous IRML documents. "Contemporary electronic musings from this MEV founder and producer of arguably the finest electric-guitar-process-as-musique-concrete-slab in the history of such an amalgam (that would be the Space Guitars CD on CRI). Despite the slightly sickening title, involved musics have less to do with tecno than, say, a selection of gold doubloons found off the Ivory Coast. Musically, these multi tracked solo synthesizer tracks (sonically akin to bending concave/convex sheets of hard vinyl) overlap in a most pleasing/mystically organized way. Liners feature new phonetically challenged texts to baffle in-laws and fans alike. Trance-inducing." - Hrvatski.

Title: Spaceball

"Bryant was an original member of the legendary 60s improvisational ensemble MEV (Musica Elettronica Viva). He later took up invented guitar language, releasing an infamous album on CRI (currently available as CRI CD 699); this new CD, self-released on his own new label, continues in the spirit of Space Guitars -- droning, long-string-like ambiance, space-pulse variations, all embedded in some of the deepest fields of cosmic invention that the current musical universe can offer. A music that Bryant claims is about whirling, speeding, smashing space particles and stormy, exploding matter -- a drama that touches our very existence, origins and being -- or not being. (I paraphrase, his unique personal spelling methods are much more exotic). Im sure this will add up as one of the quintessential personal documents of recent times." - IRML.

"Third archival MEV release on Allan Bryants label. The first track, Quadrupl Play, is a piece for rubberbands recorded in 1966 by Allen Bryant.

The second track, Pich Out (or Rocket Take Off), for 4 guitars, is loud and thundering, played by 4 musicians through 4 speakers at Sala Beloch, Rome in March 1967.
