If nothing else, Tympanic Frenzy deserves kudos for
producing music that makes good on its name, for if
God keeps a list of certified eardrum-thumping discs, the oddly punctuated
“Cerebral Funktion .. in Process ...” is on it.
Lucky for your hearing, the 10 songs on Tympanic Frenzy’s second album
proper will appeal to those prone to electronica with industrial leanings — not
so overt as to disturb, but to give it a bit of serrated edge to distinguish it from
glossy club crap. The opening “Intro (Sign of the Times)” suggests that slow
climb at the beginning of a rollercoaster, as if you’re preparing for a wild ride.
For the most part, “Funktion” has the gumption to pay that off, even if it can’t
quite clear all the loops at full-speed on the way.
Henry McMinn and Curtis Fletcher comprise the Oklahoma City-
based duo, and their music is fused with bracingly relentless breakbeats, not
unlike The Crystal Method, an act that also doesn’t forsake groove for noise.
“Funktion”’s tracks alternate between vocal-based and instrumental numbers,
with the album’s strength squarely in the latter, if only because McMinn’s
vocals come across as a little whiny. Then again, so do those of Nine Inch
Nails’ Trent Reznor. The songwriting, however, is a step above the band’s
earlier, rave-based efforts.

Tympanic Frenzy
(Best described as Electronic ∞ Rock)
Synthetic yet organic, a blend of any and all things that inspire the translation of the mind the soul and the world surrounding; Tympanic Frenzy brought to life in 1999 by brothers Henry McMinn and Ryan McDoulett is an attempt to bring to light just that a translation of what's perceived on the inside and that surrounding on the outside. A constantly changing and evolving state, whether it be a state of mind or a state of being. Translated into a universal language for anyone to interpret as they perceive it in their own mind. WE DON'T PUT OURSELVES OR THE MUSIC AND ART INTO A ONE DIMENSIONAL BOX, THEREFORE WE CANNOT BE CLASSIFIED, OUR MUSIC GRABS ELEMENTS FROM EVERYTHING WE ARE AND MELDS THEM ALL INTO ONE .
