4 stars seesselberg is a one-and-done noisy electronic prog artist, and this albums is incredibly technical. Maybe not technical as in hard to play or anything, because I'm fairly certain that this is improvised noise. It's technical as in that this album sounds like a super-computer, processing PIDs on every human's every day lives. Bleeps, bloops, buzzing, harmonic sequencer lines, dissonant zapping and hypnotic pulses. I'd liken this album to pre-Merzbow, because it has the incredible filling effect that Merzbow's music tends to have, except seesselberg is able to make every one thing stand out on its own, making this a thoroughly enthralling and compelling album to listen to - almost exhausting. I also get an Autechre feel from this album. It's really fantastic, but I don't know how to make it sound fantastic. It's just something that you'd have to hear for yourself, I guess.

If a Merzbow/Autechre collaboration from the '70s sounds like something that you'd like to hear, then seesselberg's synthetik 1 is the album to listen to. I know my review doesn't sound positive, but everything above is meant purely in a positive light.
