Having been an influence on Love Love during its infancy, Arizona based sonic meddler Terminal 11 is welcomed into the fold and not a moment too soon. Maintaining an overall extra-terrestrial form he explores the limits of FM synthesis, dynamics and poly-rhythms achieving what can only be described as a wholly individual sound. Despite the alien exterior, found within this release is a real humanity that emerges from between the sharp fragments of percussive noise and glistening dissonant melodies.
Ranging from what could be seen as some of his most accessible material, to some of his most chaotic and free-flowing, Terminal 11 pays attention to the most minute detail with the precision use of acutely polished drum programming and carefully weighted sub frequencies.
With classic releases under his belt on Cock Rock Disco and Hymen Records, ‘Harmless Chaos’ is a welcome addition to an already diverse and celebrated back catalogue.

The machine can come. Machine come machine come.
This album's sonic pallet clashes in all the right ways. It's somewhat jarring at first, but the intricate steel guitar work and the delicate breaks (hold on, did i get those two adjectives mixed up?) all become one sum - making this album's shtick an interesting aural expansion to Aaron Funk's discography.

On this album I feel like Aaron shares his emotions & thoughts directly. I feel like he is sharing his experiences here in a way I can relate to. Sometimes I feel like he understands my experiences better than I do. And that's saying a lot. goingincognito
