Boomkat Product Review:
This is the first solo audio only release by Melbourne-based sound and laser artist Robin Fox. His previous solo release was a multichannel DVD for the Synaesthesia label but he has also contibuted to EMego in that time alongside the notoriously multi-disciplined Anthony Pateras. 'A Handful Of Automation' is extreme computer music for the connoisseur, wrangling vastly complex and bewildering shapes from his machine that are as chaotic as they can be beautiful. One wonders that these tracks would impact even more intensely with corresponding laser visuals, but as they are, the dynamic string dissections of 'Black (requiem)', the hypertextural calamity of the title track and the head-mleting composition of 'Godspeed' are enough to take in as it is. Vinyl copies are limited to 300 copies for the world and features stunning artwork taken from Fox's photographic collection 'Proof Of Concept' which documents his legendary laser performances.
