The second recording by this well-regarded Montreal duo reknown for their use of dot matrix printer sounds to generate compelling minimal techno. Previous 3" on Staalplaat and extensive touring in Europe. Record release party to take place in Paris on October 5th. Stay tuned for venue details.

Created by composer Emmanuel Madan and architect Thomas Macintosh, using samples taken from the sounds of midi-controlled dot matrix printers, Symphony #2 is the kind of recording that reminds us how easy it is to reappropriate office machinery for purposes of cultural production. If that doesn't make you find moments of aesthetic pleasure at your temp job, nothing will. DJs take note of the special vinyl edition of this release due to the unique, User-brand booty shaking edits performed by the band for the purposes of turntable assimiliation. Symphony #2 will be available in Europe from the Staalplaat label.. . . . .
