Were the Barrons, of Forbidden Planet soundtrack fame, still alive and working today, they might very well sound like Marc McNulty

, the musician and sound artist whose explorations of small sonic spaces result in squiggling effects that suggest an otherworldly aura. His is a characteristically internecine journey through microscopic dank pockets of slomo whirligigs, melting tonal affect, and tantalizing garbles. Which is to say, it sounds both like a modern use of digital audio tools to explore audio objects, and like the special effects from an ancient science fiction film. Tomorrow's music is yesteryear's foley sounds. (Marc Weidenbaum,

In Cell Survival is hardly 'autopilot' music - it's not an excerpt of an ever lasting, always changing algorithm, but composed by a human, for the time needed. Styllistically McNulty stays close to his older musical principles, that of the highly atmospheric music. In 'Quartermass' this is quite deep, going back to his earliest work, but in 'Brisance' and 'Backscatter' it all seems a bit more reduced, and especially 'Backscatter' reminded me of the current music of Asmus Tietchens, especially if drones et all are reduced further more and high end bleeps and ticks remain. Excellent stuff, with a fine, dramatic build up, come down and moving along barren ice fields and hot deserts. Ambient industrial music in that 'Quartermass', like standing close to a steel factory - but not inside the actual factory itself. Great, evocative music. (Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly)
