The debut set from multimedia artist Magilla Shuwall consists of dense, polymorphous electronic compositions in the vein of Frank Zappa's Jazz From Hell. Shuwall goes about composing as if each synthesizer were an improvising human, blurring the line between soulful expression and exacting technical skill. The album is a book of disconnected snapshots of time and place in America. The result is something truly American in that it celebrates the beautiful harmony of nobody following anybody else's system.
But most people say it sounds like video game music.
