Kevin McHugh returns to his Delft imprint as LA-4A for his & the label's first artist album. Over twenty years of interest and expertise in music, art and technology have coalesced into 'Phonautograph', with its titles (and the LA-4A project itself) named for analogue communication technologies that at one point heralded a new future before receding into obsolescence. The artwork is also drawn from McHugh's time in the art world, with DL Alvarez contributing a hand-drawn reproduction of a still image from Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey: as with all LA-4A productions, the artwork is a result of analogue source material which is then digitally manipulated. Phonautograph represents an artist album in its purest sense: a deeply personal work that feels like the culmination of a lifetime of passion and experience - one that ebbs and flows across a variety of styles and tempos, from the electrifying acid house and electro of 'Resistor', 'Capacitance' and 'Dialup' to slower tempo ambient and experimental excursions such as 'Frequenzvariabler', 'Blitzlicht' and 'Semantron'....
