Album Notes
09/27/03 Mezzanine:
Saturday 09/27/03 stop by for some electronic music indulgence. Live: Acetythane, DJs Mike Ramirez, lad spastik, triton, hand corkscrew, ivee++, CD release for Gys, Art D'echo, CD and poster giveaways!

A record release party that was loosely associated with the Schematic label, Acetythane took the stage at 1:00 AM. The performance soon progressed/digressed into a wall of unintelligible sound. The highlight of the show featured one of the group's friends screaming in Nordic death-metal style over 200 BPM's layered with white noise and guitar feedback. Eventually, the group's founder walked out on the band, while the event's promoter screamed at the group to stop playing. Some people enjoyed the show, others hated it, though most just left confused.

A loose experimental project based in South Florida, Acetythane has explored the world of abstract music -- influenced by ambient, musique concrete, and late 1970's industrial. Although Acetythane owes a heavy debt to artists such as Brian Eno and Throbbing Gristle, classical and rock influences are also apparent in their sound.

Acetythane was formed in 2000 by Michael Grillo
(keyboards, programming, percussion). Since the project's formation, Grillo has worked with an ever-changing list of collaborators that includes Eric Guenette of Sleeping Dogs, David Goodman, and others. Acetythane's 2002 debut Detach showcases a raw minimalist edge with long periods of quiet ambience suddenly interrupted by heavily distorted guitars reminiscent of the Velvet Underground, fierce industrialized break-beat rhythms, treated effects, classical guitar, and noises from various objects.

New Times

Severely harsh
On the same DecadentArtworks/Shitvision imprint is Detach, the aptly titled album from Miami's Acetythane. Severely harsh, autonomously experimental electronic textures abound, along with a dose of spoken-word narration that's far more off-putting than the abrasive music. In fairness, Detach isn't all abrasive -- the moody hum of "Lazarus" creeps along at an almost subliminal level, "Telephone Booth" booms and echoes like an abandoned factory, and "Zamba" even adds a delicately plucked acoustic guitar.

A must for fans of experimental and ambient musics
This is definitely a must for fans of ambient and experimental noise. The ambient pieces have an Eno-Cage quality, while the more noisier tracks are very reminiscent of Throbbing Gristle and early Nurse With Wound. However, unlike TG and NWW these guys actually know how to play their instruments, and seem to know their way around a studio as well.


A very challenging album
I first heard about this album in a Village Voice review. I can honestly say that this is one of the most unique and challenging albums that I have ever heard. A fan of more experimental music, I initially found Detach very difficult to listen to. Although the more I listened to it, the more I began to appreciate the uniqueness of their sound. It's encouraging to see that there are still bands who are willing to take risks


The new edge of music
This is an album that's definitely worth owning. The first time I listened to it I wasn't sure what I thought... it was almost like my ears had to re-adjust themselves to the exotic sounds coming thrrough the speakers. However, the second time I listened, it grabbed me. The minimalist soundscapes, this hiss of pure current, the pounding that seethes up through layers of sound... quite a trip. One of my favorites. Get a copy -you won't regret it
