" Wireframe Cities" is Alex Retsis' tribute, to late 70's electronic music and science fiction. A soundtrack for the future that hasn't arrived yet, wireframe cities is a tale of modular synthesis, unconstrained arpeggios, elusive melodies and synthetic beats. Recorded live during a period of 6 months, "Wireframe Cities" combines minimalistic electronics with procedural music and sound design. The inspiration of the album derives from Greg Egan's novel "Diaspora", and the composer suggests themes for the cities of the future; places which humanity has transfered itself into. Wireframed cities, functionally indistinguishable molecular computer systems, that exist as hardware-based supercomputers of unknown size and computational ability, hidden in safe places and every one with its own unique character.
