Where on "Light That Comes, Light That Goes" there are still rudimentary structures recognizable, which do not create any songs from the six tracks contained there, but rather something like onomatopoeic still lifes, "Interval Signals" is based on fissured soundscapes and ethereal noises, which turn this work into something like a wandering through the radio medium and short wave scales. Perhaps these two Ensemble-Economique works published at the same time form the cornerstones, the Yin and Yang, of this project, which feeds on the distorted sound ideas of Californian musician Brian Pyles. "Light That Comes, Light That Goes" uses harsh electronics and discreet sequencer beats to build ambient Music For Films, which in any case creates bizarre movies in the listener's head. The pulsating "Ksenia" seems like a relic of the Berlin school. "If You Need Help" comes as a rugged industrial in Saffronkeira style. Interval Signals", on the other hand, which looks like an excerpt from Radio Multikulti's programme, is quite different.
