Bret Truchan is the enigmatic solo artist behind D.compose (formerly known as clone45a-6). This album offers the very best of his creations over about four years of obsessive work. Each song is amazingly complex, yet perfectly listenable and in fact enjoyable even to many who normally find noise impalatable. No song is pure noise; film / live samples, little melodies, atmospheric vocal manipulations, and titillating IDM-style drums strongly enhance the interest level of the album. It can be listened to at any intellectual level -- it works as background music or a piece to be studied.
