on the name of this blog
In case anyone is wondering about the name of this blog, it comes from my love of electronic music, in particular my love of early/mid ninties Warp Records and many of the albums and artists who came out of that era (i.e. Autechre, Aphex Twin/Polygon Window, Black Dog/Plaid, B12, Richard H. Kirk, etc. A lot of it is very blippy and bleepy stuff.) When those records were first coming out I was just discovering electronic music, and so there is a particular sense of nostalgia about it for me. I'm into some later Warp stuff like The Boards of Canada, too. I also like a lot of ambient-techno stuff (like Global Communication, The Orb, Orbital, Spacetime Continuum, and Future Sound of London), and a lot of deep ambient (like Eno, Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Vidna Obmana, Vir Unis, and Jeff Greinke).
