lead berry research - pk2pk
After nearly 20 years, this project is again available as a cassette release.
"pk2pk" is an expression from signal analysis meaning "peak to peak" as in the full swing of an analogue waveform.
The song writing was designed to express minimalism through minor melodic and harmonic chord progressions with a high degree of repetition. The repetition is broken by timbral evolution of the various analogue synthesizers to drive the fabric to the front of the observers attention.
