"The internal logic of this is quite specific - in places it reminds me of Gustavo Becerra-Schmidt's sparse Synthi studies, yet considerably more fleshed-out and multi-tracked - Nielsen clearly knows his way around his chosen instrument & the tightly controlled, flitting micro-events that make up each piece's "Orchestra" are extremely well chosen. Nielsen's thought process appears to be at a unique nexus of Cardew-styled pattern-notation experiments & "Live" - or more accurately, "Performed" Electronic Music & this set is definitely one-of-a-kind - plus I haven't seen a hand / home-made edition this thorough since Martijn Hohmann sent over that box of Universaal Kunst editions back in 2010."
