"Downcycle" (NRR77)

by Shea Stevenson

Side A 19:23
Side B 18:51


Downcycle is varied cut-up in the style of early noise acts like Eric
Lunde or Entre Vifs, by way of Alabama.

I really hate trying to describe my music..... most of my noise,
especially the cut-up though is strongly influenced by the constantly
changing environments of my childhood. My fathers schizophrenia
manifested in many ways but technophobia was a particular passion.
Every electronic device had a secondary purpose more nefarious than
its stated aim. I *try* to bring out this character with sound like he
would by disassembling them then stack it up as proof but proof of
what? That George Bush was electronically murdering my family? Maybe.
Regardless, this is the sound of childhood summers wintering in
abandoned bus barns situated in parts that will remain undisclosed
within central Alabama.
