ART & TECHNIQUE "Alea Jacta Est" , EP, (FRA, 1983)


Compared to the very interesting exploratory, minimal-electronic-industrial ambience of their debut (and best) LP "CLIMA X" (1981), the 1983 three track EP "ALEA JACTA EST" finds ART & TECHIQUE been more interested in cold synth-wave dance structures, while b-side track "Another Day An Other Life" is a more atmospheric song.

works:
CLIMA X (LP, Hi-Tec, 1981) reissued from SPALAX in 1998
PUTSCH IN MEMORIAM (7'', Hi-Tec, 1981)
DIABOLUS IN MECANICA (LP, Hi-Tec, 1982)
ALEA JACTA EST (12'' EP, Hi-Tec, 1983)

ALEA JACTA EST
a1 - Radio City Deutschland
a2 - Psychic Dance Floor
b1 - Another Day An Other Life

444 downloads of this EP and not a single comment! It pisses me off that people think of blogs as some kind of free Itunes and it pisses me off even more that people now think of themselves as passive consumers or as Mcluhan said "sender is receiver"

Anyway, many thanks for sharing, definitely worth a listen.

generally, i agree with the spirit of your comment.
As you may have noticed our blog isn't so much download-orientated as before. Posts, which aren't so frequent anymore, are now showing more towards directions than encouraging consuming more free stuff.

Perhaps it's time for everyone to ask ourselves or to remember what exactly "difficult" conditions (and listening habits) have created in the past the passionate music lover we now are...
