Noise, rhtyhm, childlike melodies, electronics, samples, and humor. Heavy use of loops as basis for thracks. All tracks great. Mostly instrumental, vocals samples noted w/quotations, FCC where noted.|
From his website: "Sydney Australia’s favourite chronically depressed, long term ‘unemployed’, alcoholic, asthmatic, homosexual electronic music pioneer… Instead of whacking a bunch of staple samples into some shitty looping machine before waiting for the files to render, he’s engaged his startled imagination over a steaming combination of dead sounds in such a way as to make them seam alive, organic. Electronic music like this can only come from a man with a 1/4 of a century’s experience in this so called new medium."
+1. deceptively cheery. "You sold me a crummy watch, I want my money back!" Makes you want to march cheerfully into the fields.
2. toy piano samples becomes orchestral
3 heavy beat, 2nd half has good “harmony”
+4.Hollow drones & crackles, ambient buzzes- good for voiceovers
+5.Upbeat. Variety of rhythms buildup nicely.
6.Ambient, watery, spacious, Indistinct vocal sample at end-“Where is he?”
7.Slow march. Should be a modern dance piece! Odd noise loops at end
8. “using sonic pressure on my head since 1977”. Fast beat. FCCs “fucking”
+9.Built out of dog & eating samples! Novelty/creepy
10.Ambient, occasional guitar, jitter-shimmer
11.More creepy animal noises over shimmer, then beat. Brief quiet vocal sample. It pulls together to something funky by the end, how’d that happen?
+12.Reminding me of 80’s Negativland, in the style of the music- no vocal. Layers, outsider, then haunted screeches. Familiar, disconcerting.
