Please enjoy my latest release titled “Nabugodonosor” (an ancient spelling of Nebuchadnezzar). I’m thinking of Nebuchadnezzar 2 from the book of Daniel who has a tripped out dream and goes insane. There are, perhaps, thematic similarities in the music.
This record is a collection of modular beats and noises born out of a year-long daily practice of patching a 12u eurorack modular system. I’ve compiled the most compelling bits of that year’s practice into a high-density beat tape inspired in part by instrumental hip-hop albums (the crew at digdugdiy in particular). The music itself strays far afield from hip-hop referencing hardcore techno, cartoon soundtracks, panic attacks, and the historic avant-garde.
The metal-styled logo (by J. Decker) pays homage to the grindcore genre, whose hyper-short tracks inspire me to stay fast and versatile in my productions. I also love the problematic legibility of logos in this style and hope my music brings up similar questions.
Even if you’re not compelled to buy a tape, I hope you’ll click through and give my compositions a listen. & of course, I look forward to hearing what you think.
All my best,
Mastered by Dan “Speak Onion” Abatemarco.
