Following last year’s Teaspoon to the Ocean, Jib Kidder delivers an uncanny dance LP featuring no-input mixer sequenced together with drum machine. It draws on the chaotic, yet emotional, atmosphere of Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music, and forms a tide of information that, whether too much or too little, makes it hard to grasp but easy to eat up. If electronic music has been made familiar (through musique concréte or Lee Gamble) with the conversion of noise into dance, New Works for Realistic Mixer suspends that progression within a less stable relationship: what we might call, after the artist Frank Stella, the marriage of reason and squalor.
