::: Whiteplan ::: "Prototype" & "People & Design"
electro-industrial techno noise
Whiteplan makes very cool offbeat electronic music that is both a refreshing
change and also hard to pigeonhole by contemporary descriptive labels.
I'd try by saying it's instrumental-abstract acid-techno with early-old-school-industrial
edges. Perhaps the best way is to say that if you're a fan of Cabaret
Voltaire's albums "8 Crepuscule Tracks", "Plasticity" and even "The
Conversation" then you'll really dig this. Similarly, if you like Severed
Head's earliest albums like "Since the Accident" when they were kinda
noisey and experimental, and shall we say, interesting and enjoyable...
all those adjectives apply to Whiteplan.
The music on these 2 albums ranges from doofy tracks with layers of
acidic modulating synths to mechanical clunky spattering percussive
soundscapes. Prototype is the more varied and longer of the two, clocking
arund 40 minutes, while People & Design is more straightforwad minimal
8-bit acid-techno recorded on an Amiga and is just under 15 minutes.
If you're sick & tired of all the boring polished, sterile, clean and
bland sounding electronic music that abounds, & want something a bit
abstract and with bite, like some of the original electronic acts, you
need Whiteplan. Great Stuff.
