$ pwgen 20 debuts with an incremental compilation series dedicated to new works composed with pulsar synthesis. Pulsar synthesis is an advanced form of particle synthesis used to generate trains of sonic particles. Its output ranges from singular impulses and sequences to continuous tones across multiple perceptual timescales.
Most of the material presented uses the New Pulsar Generator (nuPg) software designed by Marcin Pietruszewski.

an album that focuses on blasts and releases, patterns and less-so-pattern-y compositional moments. The movement from pattern-y rhythmic pulsing, even danceable? to rich, drone-y, expansive, even noisey? are idiosyncratic, natural and fun. Nothing ever builds up too much or lays too strong of a foundation, so stops and shifts are more than allowed and when a shift does occur there's a safety in knowing it will change soon. Amazingly recorded, great sounds. bkudler
