John Carpenter is the master of sustained tension with electronic music. The fine line between stasis and energy is almost impossible to define but Carpenter consistently achieves this paradox with Spartan means. This remix attempts to break the compositional tension of Carpenter’s ‘Purgatory’ and through a process of colliding loop cycles—a technique used on the Pleasure Ground album reformatting the electronics into a earth like texture outside of the urban environments traditionally connected to synthesis.
