My friend Jeremy recently posed a question – how do you refer generally to all of the genres presently described as EDM without resorting to that loathsome term? My answer: TECHNO can be used to describe nearly any music employing machines or even non-mechanical music that emulates them.


The Sounds Of Earth presents a meditation on this insight. A HYPERSURFACE is a mathematical construct used to describe a surface in a different number of dimensions. This compilation draws on that concept to illustrate the multi-dimentionality of techno.
