Do audiophile people generally like the way this pressing sounds? I feel like mine sounds a little scratchy on the low end but it's hard to tell if that's just the way it's supposed to sound (the gravelly low-end noises sound crisper when I listen to a digital copy but I wonder if this wasn't just as clear as they could get the sound on analogue without sacrificing too much of the range in general. Also I may just have no clue what I'm talking about).

Unfortunately this one comes only with plain white inner sleeves, unlike the original release.

One of my records (the one with the album) is yellow with few black stains, I suppose it's a manufacturing defect.

THE glitch masterpiece imho. The 24 minutes of Do While is rivetting, and the tracks after it and before Do While reprise make this an engaging and mesmerizing glich journey. Never surpassed!!!

For anyone that purchased the RSD release on Thrill Jockey (2013) please note that the Scanner and Jim O'Rourke tracks have been mislabelled. As such the Scanner track is the Jim O'Rourke one and vice versa.

So beautiful but tainted in its simplicity "94 diskont" was made by fractured CD pieces and collated on CD the master piece being do while it would be extremely hard to associate this piece with any think that exists but that's what makes it unique in all its form when one tries to compare you cant its simply the best piece of music assembled out of nothing!! history in the making i cant put my finger on it like many others its hard to describe how they made there music only they know but they have created a master piece that is "do-while" its common knowledge they worked with cds that had been broken in some shape or form that resulted in the album 94 diskont eletronic music of the finest type.

Do While opened up my ears for the 10+ years of clicks & glitch that followed,
yet I've never heard another track in the genre that even came close the beauty of this gem.
Classic!

This album is so completely perfect! Absoulutley beautiful! I cannot believe I haven't stumbled upon Oval until now... However it feels right that I found him when I did. That is the kind of feeling he gives you. That metaphysical, everything has it's place feel. Then everything seems interesting and akward and kind of a bustle, while you sit back and watch it go by, relaxed and eternally at ease. That is what this album sounds like to me.

I found this CD randomly in the used bin at a record shop that I frequented a couple of years back. I was stricken by the beauty of "do while" and bought it. I'm glad I did, as I've never seen the release anywhere since.

The record is universally quite good... Oval clearly has mastered the art of creating ambient scenes with a variety of moods. Tracks such as "do while" usher you through a soft, flowing, pastoral world, while others (the rest of the disc, basically) gleam with slightly harder digital precision. As a bonus, if the listener lacks the intoxicants (sorry) or patience to handle the full 24-minute journey that is "do while", the last track on the disc is an excellent remix that works with a fraction of the original song.

Definitely worth picking up for any lover of ambience that might stumble across it.

track one is a masterpiece. if you like modern glitchy ambience like mitchell akiyama, jan jelinek, opiate etc, this record is essential, and lightyears ahead of its time.
