Icarus’ unique albums


You’re either going to love this, or hate it. But you can’t knock the fact that the concept for IDM act Icarus’ new album is something pretty special.

Their new release, ‘Fake Fish Distribution, is limited to 1000 copies. what’s interesting about that is each copy will be unique. Using generative programming techniques Icarus have crafted and experimental synthesizer odyssey that morphs itself, which they recorded 1000 times.  “Icarus’ album, Fake Fish Distribution (FFD), uses generative and parametric software techniques to create 1000 unique records. FFD comes in the form of a vast array of structured variations on the album’s musical content, feeding unique versions to each unique listener.The album is available as a limited edition, via the normal medium of music distribution — the media file download — with each of the 1000 versions only being sold once and in sequential order. Upon purchase, you become the owner of that unique version.” Here’s a taste of what to expect if you happen to buy album number 500.
