Gescom United Kingdom
Gescom is described by founding member Sean Booth as an 'umbrella project' consisting of around 20 different electronic artists working together in various combinations. Booth, along with longtime collaborator Rob Brown (see also: Autechre) form the core of the group. In 1998, Touch Records released Gescom's 'Minidisc' album, the first ever record released exclusively on the minidisc format, though in 2006 it became available on CD. The album is sliced into 88 portions, encouraging the listener to loop and shuffle at will.
