Modern Hits (an anagram for Other Minds) is a series of digital-only releases by under-recognized electronic music composers from the Bay Area. The series features unreleased recordings as well as reissues of previously released material. Our hope is that the series will shed a new light on the oft-lauded and vibrant electronic music community of the Bay Area.
The name Carter Scholz will be familiar to those who follow electronic music as well as contemporary Science Fiction writing, as Scholz is an adept practitioner of both. Lexicon Plus centers around a series of pieces made via a Lexicon-brand multi-effect unit fed back into itself and manipulated through computer controlled MIDI. The result is a shockingly dense pulsing wall of noise, each movement a different color.
