Weirdo combo of banjo pickin' and guttural, primordial synthbass-beats. I always tilt my head to one side a bit, stick my tongue in my cheek, and groove to this with a kind of breezily defiant and good-natured feeling in my step.
Favorite track: fence post.
i have been working on the barnyard electronic aesthetic for a number of years in my laboratory [a mental as much as physical space]. this new work leans more on the electronic side of things. the pieces are more soundscapes, with giant elemental, shifting blocks that make up the orchestration. it's very simple, yet constructed in a way where the motifs morph into other things, pulling the listener along. i've been really getting into programming synthesizers lately and this represents some of my work in that realm. synths give a solo person [like me] quite a bit of power. as a fan of music built around that type gear, i find it fits naturally with the banjo and things like that, creating an organic yet futuristic oeuvre.
this recording is to be used. if you have a long drive, or are working in the yard, or writing a computer program, or doing a task like that, this music is designed to pull you along, and perhaps suspend time for you so you can have a space to work, or enjoy yourself or whatever you need. i wanted to create a space where the listener felt like they had all the time in the world. that is one of the beauties of ambient forms. these pieces are all like little movies.
