  Work Details  
  forty tracks, each one-minute in length, are taken from digital tapes recorded over the ten years of the groups history. None of these tapes were ever used in Ultra-red projects and are heard here for the first time. Collected together like a collage of forgotten moments in history, the album reveals incredible gems from the groups past: An encounter with police during needle exchange, cruising for sex in dark alleys, protests small and massive, intimate gatherings in East LA, Frankfurt Germany and Dublin Ireland, and a visit to an AIDS hospice in India. These forty tracks become the source material for the second Public Record album, Sony Mao Play Ultra-red (Public Record No. 2.01.007). Also composed of forty tracks, Sony Maos album feeds upon the field recordings to imagine alternative routes both in sound and in action. Heroes of the granular-synthesis underground since 2000, Sony Mao investigate electro-acoustic chaos from the random interaction and layering of modules. The rhythmic and repetitious results have appeared on the release Trnsmssn.0014 for the Miami s Beta Bodega, as well as a full length release on the Mego-associated Fals.ch label titled, A Final Balance. Sony Mao have collaborated with Random Industries, Kim Cascone, Stephan Mathieu, Elliot Perkins aka Phonem, Lymph Ltd., Andreas Berthling, Oivind Idso, and Frank Metzger of Oval. http://www.ultrared.org/
