    Check this out. You can see for yourself Eno can't get his DX7's to work either

    This is my current weekly programme. It's not entirely electronic, and some weeks may not have any at all, but it's part of the name, so has a large representation. Unfortunately, it is only an hour, so longer pieces rarely get heard, but I try to when I can. Everything from classic studio type works to current high-tech wonders, though I tend to steer away from overly beat-driven or "pop" sounding tracks. http://www.ciut.fm/shows-2/music-shows/electric-sense/

The album features 61 unreleased tracks, many showcasing Scott's Motown-era Electronium, a device that composed using programmed intelligence.

    I bought this on a whim to investigate Korg's Wavedrum technology. What I thought would be a little better than a toy turned out to be a wonderful little percussion instrument. Don't be fooled by the lack of bells and whistles. The pad feels good and quite responsive once you get used to it. The sounds are where it really shines. The clip-on trigger was a featured I didn't know it had. What seems like an iffy idea, works very well. Being able to trigger things with your leg or from a table top is really handy, and FUN! I also came to appreciate how the recording mode works. It is literally a mini-looper in there. No sequencer means you can freely overdub as many sounds as you like. This little device is so fun and easy to use. I could not put it down and ended up using it for most of the percussion on the MASKS album.

    I had one of these for a very short time. What I hoped would be a nice upgrade for my drum machines, was a total fail. The samples were so horrible, you could barely tell one sound from another.

    2017 sees the release of another collaboration from Jack Hertz, this time alongside German experimental sound artist Eisenlager. `Masks' offers eight interpretations for a broad range of ceremonial, religious, theatrical and ornamental masks, with the album frequently weaving ancient old-world elements with modern electronic styles, making for a varied but surprisingly coherent collection of ambient, prog-electronic, electronica and drone experimentation over field recording sound collages. `Zangbeto', traditional voodoo guardians of the night, is a drowsy tribal chant over lurching beats, `Avatar', a graphical representation of a computer user's alter ego or character is unsurprisingly modern slinking electronica, and `Topeng', a dramatic form of Indonesian dance blends twitching looping electronics to bring a gamelan-like hypnotic quality. `Batak' grafts chilled panning beats to shivering Steve Roach-like outreaching ambient pools, the drowsy `Skin-Walker' crosses murky beats with violent electronic slivers, and `Death' is an eerie and subtly consuming machine drone that never becomes completely pitch-black. Low-key acoustic strums pervade the disorientating droning drifts of `Gas', and `Ngil' is a surreal dark ambient closer full of unease, with ebbing dozy washes lapping around pulsing beats that skitter in and out of the darkly psychedelic atmosphere. The duo here have crafted a completely fascinating work for the Aural Films label with a cool concept that allowed them to offer a very colourful and eclectic range of interpretations of their source material. `Masks' also sees the artists at a good middle ground, with many pieces reasonably accessible without being vaguely commercial, yet always remaining intelligent and challenging, but nor is it as uncompromising or difficult to get your head around as might have been expected. Open minded electronic fans should definitely look into this diverse collection, and let's hope for more collaborations on this subject between Hertz and Eisenlager in the future, as it seems like they've just scratched the surface here! Four stars. (This review first appeared on the Prog Archives site on the 28th February 2017)
