 +The concept of Bot is not entirely clear to me: "BOT make up a virtual community with a view to assemble a collection of entities in one location in order to diffuse their production to many more places. They stand for a new approach to digital phenomena: networks, multi motionless geolocation,​ interconnection of on-line produced or processed data, automation in the treatment of reality and, especially in the case of BOTs, sites for experiments,​ always accessible, and from anywhere. […] Those recordings have been realized between September 2012 and January 2013, taken from the most stable BOTs: Nantes, St Naziare and St Sebastien in France. The transformed and reconstructed soundscapes originated from places such as private garden, garages, offices, studios and housing environnements [sic]"​. So, yes, I have no idea what this is all about, really. In the forty-five some minutes of music here we have mostly a loud sound, computer manipulation of field recordings, no doubt of various places mixed together. Bird calls can be heard a lot, and I was thinking, maybe a bunch of unnamed composers stuck microphones out their window for any given amount of time, and feed whatever was happening through computer plug ins, and another unnamed composers compiled all of these recordings together and mixed them, most of the time using a multitude of sound sources running at the same time. Maybe I am all wrong. As said it's usually quite loud, and sometimes a bit annoying, but most of it sounds alright. Sturdy, heavy, experimental music. Not the best I ever heard, but fine enough in itself. ​
