Maria W Horn disturbs the cybernetic hornet's nest on 'Excitation - Frustration - Excitation'.
Over six tracks spilling with raw voltage, Stockholm's Maria W Horn showcases an uncanny talent for melding the mechanical with the embodied. Fizzing wires make contact with engine-driven bass and melodies trace spark arcs.
"The excitation-transfer process requires the presence of three conditions. One: the second stimulus occurs before the complete decay of residual excitation from the first stimulus. Two: there is the misattribution of excitation, that is, after exposure to the second stimulus, the individual experiencing the excitation attributes full excitation to the second stimulus. Three: the individual has not reached an excitatory threshold before exposure to the second stimulus."
