The story of electronic music pioneer Kerry Leimer continues with a focus on his auteurist studio project Savant. Compiling the standalone album, 1983's The Neo Realist (At Risk), with Savant's debut 12" and a grip of compilation and unreleased tracks, 'Artificial Dance' documents Leimer's complete collaborative venture into the unpredictable realities of music, exploring the gulf between what is expected by its creators and what is eventually - and eternally - committed to tape.

Savant tonally operates in a space between This Heat's dark primitivism and the found sound collage of Brian Eno & David Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. These analogies are simply stylistic, as the narrative behind The Neo-Realist's production makes clear Leimer was concocting via more alchemic means, avoiding genre aspirations by looking for accidental moments of musical intrigue and discovery.

Leimer explains this process in the collection's liner notes: "I was looking for flaws, for faults to act as the stand-out features of the music."
