Arpanet is the new project to come out of the Dataphysix laboratory in Detroit (USA). It is a poetic and prophetic Kraftwerk type concept-album devoted to the revolutionary technologies of Japan’s leading telecommunication company NTT DoCoMo, a permanent connection to the internet.
The thesis developed by Arapanet is that, in a very near future, cellular phone users will have in their hand a remote control for their life. Arpanet was produced at the Dataphysix headquarters, where the acclaimed and cult combo Dopplereffekt project was recorded. Dopplereffektwere one of the strangest and most mysterious units of the contemporary electronic music scene.
They had developed their very own and highly influential sound aesthetic, without which the current electro-hype probably wouldn’t sound as it does. Japan is wireless, we are wireless. What about you? Are you Wireless?
