Psychophysicist is a cult psychoacoustic project within Adi Newton’s extensive discography. The first album is from 28 years ago, and the efforts to initiate a second chapter begin twenty years later. Audio Computing by Psychophysicist has a very long history, important for many reasons. Audio Computing’s first recording sessions began (under the working title Psychophysicist II) with Adi Newton and Paul Prudence in 2016, and then continued throughout 2017. Later interrupted, the sessions for Audio Computing resumed in 2022, then continued in 2023, with Adi Newton and Fabio Kubic. Adi Newton and Jacques Beloeil worked throughout spring 2023 and early summer on the production, equalisation and mastering of the album, which to call hypnotic, cohesive and granitic in its minimal severity is an understatement. Audio Computing has a sculpted sound and this is truly due to the patient work of Jacques Beloeil, to whom all the work is dedicated, as he left us suddenly on 26 June 2023. This is the last album he worked on before he died. It has his soul within the sounds. It is his sonic testament and therefore has a very special importance for Adi Newton, for us and for all of Armcomm Rizosfera Europe and Armcomm tribe around the world. We thanks Adi Newton, Jacques Beloeil, Paul Prudence and Fabio Kubic for this beautiful work. Psychophysicist is a project founded by Adi Newton & Andrew Mackenzie in 1993-1994 to develop Psychophysics and Psychoacoustic & electronics in applied Sonology. Psychophysicist being the name of the Project and the self titled name of the first Release (1996, Side Effect Records).
