|THE NO COMPRESSION COMPILATION
It gave birth to itself...
The No_Compression Compilation is a physical manifestation of a one-night electronic music/video fest in Syracuse, NY. Spawned from a listserve designed to organize a single event, No_Compression has grown in the span of a couple weeks from a chat-room to a united forum intent on putting the collective’s achievements into tangibility. Submissions for the fest's accompanying compilation began pouring in from across the nation, then around the globe. Featuring artists eclectic in sound design, but united in motivation, this compilation is a testament to creation, a product of the new communication.
Boasting over an hour of material from more than a dozen artists (participants have releases on Underconstructing, Technoh, Werkzeug, Fallt), the No_Compression compilation reveals the next expansion of electronic music and composition. With established artists such as o9 and Twine next to new faces La Plage and Century Quartet, with styles ranging from micro-glitch, to tilted dance, to found-sound-ambience, No_Compression offers a concise overview of the current state of underground electronic music in all its leftfield glory.
Participating artists include:

May we forever wield our new technologies with such grace and purpose.
