This is a CD with a booklet that was released in September 2023 by experimental musician Connor Camburn from Los Angeles, USA, on the Chicago experimental label Pentiments, in a limited edition of 9 copies.

Contains 7 collage drone songs with almost no melodies. DL code included. 

The 12-page color booklet includes images of housing construction disasters and the work of an American mechanical engineer.A collage composed of Hans Moravec's 1980 robotics paper ``Obstacle Avoidance and Navigation in the Real World by a Seeing Robot Rover'' is posted.

Previous workIs also recommended.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"Pentiments is our first foray into CD-primary territory with a selection of audio and visual works by newly relocated Los Angeles artist and close friend Connor Camburn. Included on this disc are academic The harsher, more uncompromising voices that occupy the raucous edges of electroacoustic music (Kent Tancred's voluminous generative palette; Benjamin Tippen's scorching Connor's work also incorporates a cellular approach that eschews the itinerant nature mentioned above in favor of a more homeostatic mode (e.g., sonic malfunctions, the alien outputs of Roland Cain's cybernetic systems, etc.). There is also a tendency toward naked repetition.The accompanying booklet contains works based primarily on images of housing construction disasters, as well as Hans Moravec's 1980 robotics paper Obstacle Avoidance and Navigation in the Real World by a Seeing Robot Rover.As a result, an algorithmic and diagrammatic crisis is on display, emphasizing in its aesthetic embrace the alienated pseudo-effects produced by computational mechanisms' attempts to parse the products of the senses and intellect.The harsh and verbose refutation of the approaching ``technological singularity'' rears its ugly head, prompting us to see in the code the accidental grandeur of malfunction.

Pentiments:

" Pentiments takes its first leap into CD-primary territory with a selection of audio and visual works by newly relocated Los Angeles artist and good friend Connor Camburn. Contained on the disc are seven formidable studies of a kind with some of the more barbed and uncompromising voices that occupy the noisier margins of academic electroacoustic music (the voluminous generative palettes of Kent Tankred, the charred sonic dysfunctions of Benjamin Thigpen and the alien outputs of Roland Kayn's cybernetic systems all come to mind), although Connor's work also displays a proclivity for the bare repetition of cells that eschews the itinerant natures of the mentioned in favor of more homeostatic modes. The accompanying booklet consists mostly of works based on images of home construction disasters and Hans Moravec's 1980 robotics thesis Obstacle Avoidance and Navigation in the Real World by a Seeing Robot Rover visually mangled by what is suspected to have been erring optical character recognition during its conversion into a PDF file. The result is an exhibit of algorithmic and diagrammatic crises that emphasize by means of aesthetic embrace the dissimulated pseudo-affects engendered by a computational mechanism's attempt to parse products of sentience and intellect. A stark and laconic argument against the oncoming “technological singularity” rears its ugly head and one is encouraged to find in its code the incidental grandeur of malfunction."
