Machines for Collective Living is Bouvetøyas sixth album at SynGate Records.
“Maybe this world is another planet’s hell” – Aldous Huxley
With his album "Machines for Collective Living" Michael Jones aka Bouvetøya from Ireland faces the current technical development of this decade, though in highly melodic references through synthesizer-tunes full of character. The album spans a great and calm suspense and invites to dive into flowing soundcarpets. Maybe a request, to create such spaces against the rush and haste of the world to face the mechanisation with serenity?
Francis Beaubois from Radio Mercure (France): "Bouvetøya ... has succeeded at capturing the soul of the electronic music of the seventies. The shadows of Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze are floating upon this masterpiece !"
