Daniel Lopatin, the mind behind Oneohtrix Point Never and one half of Ford & Lopatin, takes Quietus blog readers through his 13 favorite albums. In his top 13 is "Chaotica", Tom Recchion's 1996 album recorded primarily in 1985 and 1986.

Says Lopatin:

"Tom Recchion was a leading member of the L.A. Free Music Society and this is his 1996 album. He is somewhat overlooked in conversations pertaining to 20th century experimental sound people, which is unfortunate because the material on Chaotica is some of the most beautiful tape music (and best synth music) out there, and it has had a lasting affect on me. 'Enormous Horses' has almost a proto [William Basinski's] Disintegration Loops or Caretaker vibe to it, with its microsleep induced engorged pedals going in and out of focus ad infinitum. Drooooool."

While Chaotica is currently out of print. Poo-Bah Records plans a double vinyl reissue later this year.
