    Reissued from a very limited CDr on Side of the Sun Recordings, more than half a decade ago, Ataraxic Ataxia is a duo of electronics and violin by Dominick Dufner and Nicole Pizzato. Unlike many combos like this, there is a unique delivery of organic, true industrial noise mannerisms that only could have come from this configuration. It is not simply the dialed in ambiance of strings. The beauty and grit of this release is not only palpable, but also sort of regenerating and constantly transforming. The rest is enshrouded in mystery. Ataraxic Ataxia has done a recycled cassette on RRRECORDS and a few low profile releases, like an extremely limited 3 inch CDR that comes with a post card from the 30s, for instance. Dufner's solo project, Sigulda, was absolutely thrilling at Neon Marshmallow Fest in 2010, using MINIMAL electronics. This application with the expert use of string instruments by Nicole Pizzato is not to be missed. 49 minutes.
