“Who Is Guitarman?” C25

What an ingenious, brilliant culling of primarily mangled field recordings and sparse, loose, buried/blurred guitar lines! Loops of disassociated sounds cave in on previous ones, forcing textures, some pleasant, some notsomuch, and then they all just ride along “beats” of electro-acoustic samplings of metal wire reverberating, these forever subtly shifting. The end result is a seamless sound collage of “curved diminishing repetition, mechanical grooming”, a quote from a series of words snipped & re-arranged for anti-context. If I sound crazy, I blame the tape. Can’t think straight. Brain rearranged. So. Fucking. Good!
