This is a record David Paganin and I made (Shrugs of Eternity) over long distance between Melbourne AUS and Oregon US this last summer. We traded improvised tracks back and forth and although we have communicated through text at various times, we have never met in person or spoken with one another. The sounds that came from Oregon were Hordijk modular system sounds and the Australian sounds are layered and vary from synthesized, sympathetic sounds, Korg MS-10, improvised percussion using a metal dressmaker dummy frame struck by metal tools and sticks, some large metal pots, some thin branches, dried plant stalks, a wind-up torch, voice and feedback, marbles in a dish, a big tin-foil tray gong, a plastic cup, and striking a pillow with a thin stick, Most tracks were mixed by David to final output. We thought up a handful of titles for the release and then used a random data generator to roll the dice and pick a final title for the release and project name. Ultimately, they were both titles that David had picked! Vary kewl. The cover art is a merge of drawings David and I both did at different times. David and I turned it over to Cian Orbe netlabel for release on the Internet Archive the day of the last Solar eclipse here in Oregon.
It’s a very playful, joyous record and it’s free for download and redistribution I hope you dig it:
