Dave Wright is in a class all his own. I have followed his prolific career for many years now & his work only gets better with each release, which is something that can't be said of many artists. He is the Southwestern American equivalent of Aphex Twin in terms sheer artistry, only more ingenious in my humble opinion. What sets Not Breathing apart from the legions of other electronic artists is the fact that he makes most of his own gear & doesn't have to rely on the latest computer programs. He has a unique gift of bringing back the old school analogue sounds & transforming them into something entirely new & interesting. Not Breathing's releases are absolutely outstanding, but the real magick is in the live improvisational performances.
