AllMusic Review by

Since 1997, prolific noisemakers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio have released a myriad of limited run LPs and homemade CD-Rs under the moniker My Cat Is An Alien. Operating at the dusky crossroads of drone-addled electronics and electro-acoustic improvisation, the duo creates totally unique, intimate sound works based on a strong visual or poetic conceptual component. COSMIC DEBRIS VOL. 1 is a reissue of the first installment of MCIAA's "Cosmic Debris" split LP series. Here the brothers collaborate with Lee Ranaldo and his all-star ensemble Text Of Light on two long-form tone poems that are by turns abrasive, meditative, and just plain weird.
