in a haze:

You've probably heard Scott Sturgis' work with Ant-Zen Records favorites Converter so you should be accustomed to his eccentric side. But nothing will fully prepare you for the journey you're about to embark on with his Positron Records latest under his own name. Heck, you might have heard some remixes he's done for the likes of Haujobb, Suicide Commando, and his collaborations with Asche and Morgenstern. But still this is light years ahead of all that with its atmospheric bubble that encases you from head to toe bursting your musical hymen with essential experimental IDM bliss. Everything's twisted into downtempo beats with psychedelic soundscapes swirling about in the higher echelons all linked together with pseudo German industrial precision. Amazing.

in a haze:

For those not "in the know," Scott Sturgis is the mind behind Pain Station and Converter, as well as other projects, such as this one.

This is a CD of a live performance recorded early last year. It speaks more so to the electronic side of Mr. Sturgis' work, forgoing the experimental side of Converter in favor of a more loopy electronic soundscape of glitchy noise, drums, and droning squeals of sound, providing an excellent internal soundtrack. It is not a catchy or fun listen, by any means, but rather interesting and complex way in which Mr. Sturgis goes about his creations leave you interested in the proceedings without it blurring into a monotonous haze. Over the six tracks, you are led quickly through a world of ever-changing, engrossing material. This is suitable background music that tantalizes the mind instead of just providing noise to fill the empty space...Scott Sturgis seems to set the bar in most areas he places his creative foot into. With the ingenuity of this project as well as the one-upping of powernoise by Converter, you are left to wonder what will spring next from his mind.
