Operation Mind Control
Operation Mind Control have released one album - Funkturm (ADOR 401, 1994) on D.O.R. The tracks on this CD use various percussion instruments, radio transmissions and other samples to create a hybrid of techno and musique concrete. Using the radio transmissions as the skeleton and structural elements of these recordings, this CD has a conceptual feel similar to the recent Conet Project releases, and is an exploration of "the dichotomy of technology in its function for global communication: on one hand increased<br> access to information; on the other increased sublimation of the individual."

Another Operation Mind Control track, Hands Up is featured on the D.O.R. sampler The Elements series: Earth.

This project has now transmuted into Funkturm, but the O.M.C. recordings are a ritualistic, techno-tinged foretaste of the forthcoming minimalist breakbeat Urban Mantras collection.

"OMC's mantric, mechanical hypno-rhythms prompt the coinage industri(b)al. Disturbing, disorienting and relentless, the eleven tracks here slug your solar plexus while creating a diabolical sonic wasteland that consistently compels. OMC have made a soundtrack for that imaginary sequel to Eraserhead."
- Alternative Press, May 1995
