Gescom

Profil:
The project name is an abbreviation of "Gestalt Communications". Beginning its activities in the early nineties, the Gescom collective has released material on Clear, Leaf, Chocolate Industries, SKAM, Warp, Worm Interface, and Source labels.

Incorrectly perceived as simply an Autechre side-project, Gescom in fact exists as a platform for a number of aligned artists to work in various different combinations, whilst remaining otherwise-anonymous. Personnel in Gescom has varied from release to release and even track to track. Quote from the Autechre FAQ: "Actually the whole Gescom crew consists of almost 20 people. Sean Booth calls it an 'umbrella-project'."

The people behind Gescom continue to be a mystery, with the exceptions of Gescom EPs 1 and 2, where the "conspirator" names are listed. I doubt they want us to know, and I doubt they want us to care, but that's not going to stop me from wondering. I'm hesitant to believe that *everything* post-Gescom EPs 1 and 2 is Booth/Brown. I'm not so sure they're behind ISS:SA, at least not fully... just doesn't sound it to me.

Anyway, regardless, there's been a lot of good stuff released under Gescom, especially Keynell and the Keynell remixes (essential). I've heard people call Gescom Autechre's "electro" outfit, which isn't true at all. All the Gescom releases are pretty unique; people who say they're electro probably just heard Sound of Machines, which is very electro. The rest isn't.

And in response to the above post: my guess is that the track you heard is "megamix," the last track off the ISS:SA CD (exclusive to the CD, not on vinyl). Maybe not, though...
