I8U fashions sound instead of "sounds." She builds slow, evolving soundscapes of buzzes and clicks tailored to fill your listening room, resonate between your walls and inside your chest. This half sound installation/half electro culture sound is not really new, but this artist does it well. Using a handful of field recordings, digital and analog machinery, she succeeds in creating hypnotic pieces that swallow you whole without becoming alienating. A couple of tracks flirt with noise-based sound art, but in general B stays more on Pan Sonic's playground, although it is less concerned with rhythm. I8U's technique and artistic vision do not sound fully matured, but they hold promises worth checking this album out.
