Product Notes

Atomic City is the Internet's first electronic music production company, having been formed well over a decade ago. Their early experiments in collaborative emusic, given the nickname 'Team Metlay' after founder Mike Metlay, have been released on a series of CDs that are now available through CD Baby. Bandwidth is where it all began. In the dead of winter of 1990, seven musicians travelled across the planet to an empty basement in Pittsburgh. They knew each other only as names on the Internet, in those dim days before AOL and the Web, where computer scientists, students, and military personnel communicated via the strange new science of email. They hauled piles of gear out of cars, and in less than a day they transformed the bare room into a complete electronic music studio. They spoke together, putting voices and faces to names. And then they began to play. Two weeks later, they were gone. The room was empty once more, and all that remained were a set of master tapes... and not long after that, this album. Six of the seven band members contributed tracks. A seventh added solos and arrangements. A 'virtual' eighth member contributed a track that was realized at long distance by his collaborators. The result is an utterly eclectic mix of Berlin School, jazz, ambient soundscapes, dance, and film music... The first step on a journey that was to take a decade to complete, and whose final fruits have yet to be heard by the world. The four tracks excerpted are only a small taste of the material available... The longer tracks can't be fairly represented by their first two minutes. But at least you can have a taste of what's to come... Bandwidth, the birth of a legend and the beginning of a long and very strange trip. Be sure to check out CD Baby's site for other Atomic City titles, including further work from the Team and it's members' solo efforts.
