BPM&M, an experimental exploration that involves remixing an assortment of aural documents created throughout the years by legendary group King Crimson, it's associates, and other sources from beyond. With an assortment of computers, this literal dynamic duo have somehow managed to modify their laptops into musical electrocardiogram machines and have output a display of techno heartbeats previously unknown to mankind. The grand result is one aluminum and plastic-based compact disc containing sounds of nuclear beats and jungles of drone, compiled in measures of time that will have patrons of raves dancing on walls and exchanging the left sides of their brains with the right. And, it is highly safe (or unsafe perhaps) to say that the two have exploited modern technology to it's finest and fullest, along with putting the group's musical and philosophical thought processes through some rather intense digital therapy. A guitar is played by a saxophone, and tape machine transport mechanisms are put through some hefty isodynamic benchmark tests. Those are just minor examples of what's going on in the grand scheme of things. But, .."What were you expecting?!"
