Robert Kauker is the man behind this very unknown project called CRITICAL MONKEY. Kauker (known also under the name of Robi Kauker) is with no doubt more known for his recordings, works and remixes in the field of electronic, dance and techno music; as musician and also as a Dee Jay. He started in music late 90's decade and he has recorded a lot of musical styles, from harsh noise to field recordings to minimal to techno or acid house, to mention just a few. In 2006 he recorded this little hidden gemm entitled "Failure of an intelligent design", a great sample how to do harsh noise and experimental music with messages related to social issues, animal rights, ecologism or against war, to mention a few ones. Nine tracks very different between them envolved with an atractive artwork made by his wife, Theresa Kauker.
