    This record is basically a collection of voice loops over some simple clicks-and-cuts. The voice phrases are recorded separately, see tracks 10-18, the titles of these tracks are exactly the words that are being repeated.

    The point of this "album" is, I guess, this: what happens when you pick a couple of words and start repeating them ad infinitum, will you start hearing other words that were hidden among the sounds of the original word? What happens when you repeat "Taliban, taliban, taliban, talibantalibantaliban"? There is a "libanta" inside, what is it, a female "liberal ant", or a female "library ant"? I remember we were doing this with words when we were kids. A broken record could do this, too. "Evenements 09" is centered around this idea, and it just doesn't work.

    It's too simple an idea, and it's boring, the magic does not happen, the bird fails to sing. You see exactly how everything is done. You will be skipping from one track to the next, then you'll take the CD out, think "wow, pretty neat Raster-Noton packaging here again", and put it on the shelf with the rest of Raster-Noton CDs, probably never to take it out again.
