After blazing trails with his debut album Exits (ACRE 005CD/LP) and wowing the skeptical chat rooms with his all-hardware Boiler Room blow out, the North Country bit-smasher returns. The IIVA EP is a mini-album of experiments, re-animations and rebirths. Unlike its big brother Exits, IIVA sets an immediate agenda, drums burst through fizzing tape hiss and field recorded "found sounds" are given urgency and purpose. Along with an army of hooded mystery collaborators, Pan's NHK even joins the fray with a radiophonic technoid re-rub of "IIVA." All action.
