Abrader is a limited edition cassette only release of the first solo work by Mark Spybey of Dead Voices On Air. It contains two exclusive tracks and one track which appears on Spybey's third album "Shap". Intriguingly enough much of this material is extremely noisy compared to much of the later DVOA material. Musically speaking, the aural intonations are equivalent to material on "Shap" but with the duration of songs from "New Words Machine." Instead of remaining content to work with finite elements of sound over a discrete period of time, this early work instead stretches the aural manifestations over extended time periods. Often it appears that the music is reaching a crescendo of cacophony only to suddenly quiet and build again. By comparing the sheer volume of material that Spybey has released in the past calendar year, both side projects, and solo work, with this older release, one can begin to deconstruct some of the fundamental musical techniques that Mark uses to create his compositions. This tape is the consummate example of a retrospective work and should not be missed by diehard fans at any cost.
