Intense musical examination of the Vietnam War, and a definitive statement from one of the leaders of contemporary power-electronics. These tracks are not a shallow thematic gesture to the Vietnam War. Rather, they attempt to evoke the atmosphere, dirt, violence, fear, shame, pride, failure, and triumph of one of history's ugliest wars. Attempts to approach the feeling of that conflict from someone who never fought in it, yet has immersed themselves in the history, art, and media depicting the war. Nearly sixty minutes, 18 songs, and a host of collaborators, including members of Koufar, Terror Cell Unit, Private Archive, Worth, Breaking the Will, and Interracial Sex. Sure to go down as one of the strongest industrial statements of 2018. The tape is accompanied by a massive virtual compendium compiled by the artist, accessed here: striations-vavc.blogspot.com
