I felt great relief and celebration upon hearing this album. Unlike the previous two, I can listen to this album all the way through without skipping. This, for me, is the go-to Dopplereffekt album.

Every piece is precisely arranged, to the point, and perfectly executed. Dopplereffekt are really quite unique in how much they can get out of a synthesizer. All of their more recent work, which has been released through Leisure System, has been outstanding.

Long live Dopplereffekt, one of the most unique, truly electronic bands of all time.

Exponential Decay. Gestalt Intelligence. Ulams Spiral. Von Neumann Probe. Spirangle. All of them. Proper definition of real future music, even in 2121.
Cellular Automata reaches the level of Great Art and grants its place in the Pantheon of Eternal Beauty.

Abstract instrumental electronic tracks, hard to put in words, fascinating though. Excellent pressing.

There is a sequence used in "Cellular Automata" that sounds highly similar to a sequence used in "Drugs Work" by System 01 as released on Tresor in 1994.

As a big fan of all Drexiya family music I need to say that this album is a remake or rework of Calabi Yau Space which was absolutely innovative and inspiring for me. Yes I know Arpanet ‎– Wireless Internet was forruner to Calabi Yau Space and all this was moving very smooth from mathematics to physics. But now unfortunately it sound like Dopplereffekt some old projects or reworked projects. With great honer to Gerald Donald.

on cellular automata, dopplereffekt continue to sculpt the focus of their beatless electro-architecture without jettisoning the laboratorial method their previous work has come to represent. here, the listener is granted the rare privilege of travelling through the vast, voluminous chambers of the greyscale techno-future as peerlessly described by donald and nhan yet again. cellular automata is cinema for the ears and a formidably early contender for the finest electronic record of the year.

Once at a Dopplereffekt show, a fellow wearing a lab coat told me "This is science, not techno." I will never forget these words, and this album release is a reminder of the truth in that statement.

In the first few bars of this release, I am immediately transported back to a time, where primitive Personal Computing Machines were to be our Salvation and not eventually enslave us in Hyperconnectivity.
