Bob Marinelli / Flutter - _Fun & Games_
(Distorted Vision Records, 1998)
by: Gabriel Sanchez (8.5 out of 10)
With noise, just like most genres, it isn't always the "big boys" who are producing the best material these days. Two relative "unknowns" of the noise scene, Bob Marinelli and the rookie group of Flutter, come together for an amazing split release that not only stands on the level of so many of the genre's top names, but puts others to shame at the same time. Marinelli's noise assault is in a state of constant motion as the sounds enter and leave the mix before one's brain can even get an entire lock on just what it is listening to. If there was ever a composition that exemplifies the complete and total lack of barriers, patterns, and reasoning in noise, this is most certainly it. On the flip side, Flutter work hard to match Bob Marinelli's level of pointless chaos with their digitally contorted harsh noise collage. Using everything from sound loops to pop/dance song snips, Flutter's sound remains as harsh and energetic as ever. Once again, there is no way for one to even lock a pattern onto the brutality as it is constantly flying from patterns of high pitched beeping to sub-woofer blowing rumblings. The bottom line is that this release demonstrates the purity of noise: no communication, no patterns, no boundaries. Just plain and simple electronic ejaculations of sound that shatter the ear drums but soothe the soul, all at the same time.
