T.A.G.C. "Iso-Erotic Calibrations"

Strange music, awkward thoughts, bizarre intentions. What else would you expect from some records we keep posting around here? This is the one you need to hear. Experimental electronics, drone, noise, ambient, I think these all caracterize this CD.
Info taken from Wikipedia:

The Anti-Group Communications, or T.A.G.C. are a side project of Clock DVA. Formed in the early 1980s by Adi Newton (although the idea existed as early as 1978), T.A.G.C. (originally The Anti-Group) was conceived as an open-membership experimental multimedia collective, focused on audio, visual, and textual research and production, as well as performance art and installations.

T.A.G.C. audio recordings are released on Newton's Anterior Research Recordings label. The theoretical underpinnings of these recordings, which are often primarily psychoacoustic experiments or carefully-constructed aural rituals, are made explicit in the lengthy liner notes which accompany most releases.

In 2005, a maxi CD 'Psychoegoautocratical Auditory Physiogomy Delineated' was released as T.A.G.C. without Adi Newton's involvement or approval. [1]

After years of silence, Adi Newton with his creative partner Jane Radion Newton re-activated T.A.G.C. for a live multimedia performance at Equinox Festival, London in June 2009. [2]

The acronym T.A.G.C. is also intended to represent the four nucleotides that make up DNA (thymine, adenine, guanine and cytosine).

The track list for this album is the following:
1.Iso-Erotic Calibration 6:52
2.Union with Sirens 7:55
3.Mercurious 4:45
4.Annals of Sancity 5:17
5.Nuerological Engineering 10:23
6.Psychophonophilia 7:43
7.Ethemeral 6:48

My favourit tracks are: "Ethemeral", "Iso-Erotic Calibration" and "Annals of Sancity".
The album's lenght is around 49 minutes.

Below is a videoclip for the song "Iso-Erotic Calibration":
