Hoff chose to focus specifically on the self-replicating Blaster worm, whose decompiled source code can be found on the cover of this challenging yet ultimately engaging LP. The artist "infected" a series of 808 beats with the virus, using the mutant sonic material to assemble seven short micro-compositions. Each piece is a noise-strewn pathway through a virtual war zone; shredded sound has been injected into these barely-recognizable beats nearly randomly, producing a disorienting effect akin to being caught in a broken video game. It's crazy, but cool at the same time.
The second side of the record is devoted to laying out the infected sound in one 15-minute blast, ultimately providing a tool for others to sample from, scratch, or otherwise pass on the virus to additional unsuspecting hosts. (Pan)
