Probably one of the least interesting releases in my collection, I can understand why this is rather hard to come by, it just isn't worthy of wider distribution, if any, I think. The first track, by Raum, is a quiet, nearly non-existent, drone that's far less interesting than the title; in my mind though, the track was a complete letdown, as I expected to hear something a little 'meatier' than what seems to be someone vacuuming in the next room.

But I was more disappointed with Bruce Gilbert's piece, as I usually have high expectations for his work. Radiator, Plane, Bang seems to be nothing more than field recordings of each, mixed together into a non-climaxing farce. I say that because, which the idea itself had some promise, the result is just so bland that it gives a sour name to experimental music.

All in all it's really forgettable.
