SecretCatPolicy This is absolutely stunning. Pure textural sound in places, catchy action themes or masterful gradual atmosphere-building in others. It reminds me of many other great things - classic movie scores, of course, but also mid-period (i.e. best) Pink Floyd and Kraftwerk, among others - without ever feeling like it rips any of them off. My only complaint is the shortness of each track, and the fact it's not crafted to flow seamlessly from one track to the next.

Wojciech Król Very analog sound if you can say that. Love the atmosphere , grittiness and the sounds. GOOD STUFF! Favorite track: Fatale.

mrpigeon Could probably be dropped in as the soundtrack to just about any gritty, noir science fiction film out there. So much synth goodness in a tight 40-ish minute package.

about

'An absolute must for lovers of classic synth scores, 194 ranks alongside Geoff Barrow's DROKK as one of the finest examples of cinematic synth music' - The Skinny

'194 re-affirms the importance of analogue music within twenty-first century culture' - Lost At E Minor

'194, what many try to achieve, but few actually pull off this well' - Electronic Rumors

'Reflects the ethos of Phillp K. Dick and even Kraftwerk...John Carpenter would love this' - Stranger Passing

'Very nice!' - Adam Buxton

194 is a dystopian soundtrack, drawing on visions of concrete futures found so often in 1970s and 80s sci-fi cinema, and the synthetic soundscapes which accompany them.

Reflecting a brutalist asetheticism; in keeping with a style of art or architecture characterized by deliberate crudity of design; creating an austere style of auditory estrangement through massive and monolithic musical forms, rough-textured and unpolished materials - 194 reaches back to the often forgotten timbres of analogue synths and warm, fluttering tape - coupled, of course, with a healthy amount of twenty-first century sub bass...
