Sincere thanks to guest contributor Houndworld for this post…
Album: U5 / Velo
Year: (unknown / 2002)
Type of music: Looped environmental samples
Notes: These two 3″ CDs are linked by their use of sound sources and their format. Apparently, there is a third in the series, though I can’t find any information about it. U5 is music constructed from samples recorded on the Vienna underground system; the packaging is apparently made from the original dam material of the stations. Velo is comprised of bicycle samples, more strongly rhythmical and less tonal than U5; the packaging is styled after a 70′s puncture repair kit.
