Atrial Systole

Chris & Cosey - Heartbeat (1981)

In one of their early post-Throbbing Gristle chapters, Chris & Cosey's "Heartbeat", among many such examples of the time, demonstrates the immediate beauty and the power of synthetic minimalism. The album established the duo's independence, further developing the careening sequencer settings which Carter had welded into TG, and feeding into a new wave of post-punk pop with uncompromising minimalist aesthetics and a darkly crooked intent.
