When Tiago Morgado idealized Algorrithmic Chaos for his DNP X-Citer alter ego he thought of a way to break, in a certain way, with the IDM tradition, following some of the guidelines defined by Scanner the german musician (in the sense of not confining IDM to reductionist formulas). The background for this DNP X-Citer ep is Tiago's influences and reverence to artists such as Aphex Twin, Autechre (warp records), Alva Noto, Ryochi Ikeda and Byetone (raster noton) but also Nine Inch Nails and his approach to industrial rock that Einsturzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle and etc... brought to music. All this influences can be identified in the electronic part of the DNP X-Citer ep which serves as the basis for an improvised "free/structured" with alto viola. Again in this improvisation several references can be found, such as, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra, Pharaoh Sunders, Frank Zappa, John Zorn, Otomo Yoshihide, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, among others.
The electronic part of the ep was worked with the use of algorithmic composition techniques, where instruments in the DAW (digital audio workstation/sequenciador) were triggered by MIDI, according to simple theoretical and systematized assumptions from the AC Toolbox (designed by Paul Berg from the Institute of sonology - the hague - netherlands). tiago morgado as been working with these tool because he believes that it can be helpful in his work with algorithmic composition (please do not forget that the MIDI and OSC material genarated with ac toolbox can be used to play live; eg: histo+anal+MIDI/OSC source reading and generative/reactive control of parameters).
Algorrithmic Chaos is a technical work, without an a priori conceptual background, but when Tiago Morgado analyzed it a posteriori an organized chaos appeared. And based on that, using contemplation maybe you the listener can identify a theme for this ep.

What's a netlabel?
I won’t obviously explain you that in here but you can easily find that information in wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netlabel and information about creative commons in http://creativecommons.org
Is this music really free? Just download?.. Do i need to pay to play it in clubs?
Yes it's free. All tracks are released under a by-nc-nd creative commons license (unless otherwise specified), and are also all unsigned from any of those artist royalties ripoff associations. That means that it's free to download, distribute and broadcast without needing to pay anything to anyone, not even to the GEMA / RIAA / SPA / SGAE / TEOSTO / whatever. The only thing you can't do with it is claim ownership or release any derivatives commercially without the artists permission. All broadcasting and non profit distribution activity is perfectly legal and legislated.

Yes. We want our releases and artists to be known across the whole multiverse and beyond. So please _do_ abuse whatever independent distributing technology you see fit, including http, ftp, dcc, fserver, cdr, radiocast, webcast, bittorrent and whatever other p2p solution you can imagine.
