review:
Artificial Memory Trace has Singtra (WAYSTYX45), 
whose cardboard wallet (decorated with trams and tramlines) 
has been neatly sliced across the diagonal to reveal the bright yellow 
traffic light within. Buy a ticket for this particular 
trolley-ride and you'll be in for 24 minutes of minimal pulsing 
and glistening music, rendered with precision and intense 
concentration by its mysterious creator. 
Slavek Kwi recorded trains in Prague in 1994 
then reprocessed them ten years 
later to create this extremely marginal music, 
which can either induce existential despair, 
or a form of ascetic rapture 
in the brain. 
End of the line, folks.
