‘towards programmed intellectual nothing’ album released
all new. made in a week.
i wanted to record an album that sounded unfamiliar to me. so i chose some constraints that would prevent me from getting too connected.
this set was sequenced from solo, single-take hardware jams recorded to two-track with minimal editing and post-processing, mostly between 18-24 sept 2016. everything was mashed out live into sequencers with nothing prepared apart from a few rhythms.
so there’s a bunch of mistakes and clipping and leakage and analog grunge printed in. you can maybe sense the terror in the second half of some of these tracks as i desperately hang on.
