Sculpture - Elk Cloner
Elk Cloner appears on TOAD BLINKER, a psychophonotropic picture disc LP by music and animation duo, SCULPTURE, Dekorder records, October 2011.
More excellent experimental electonics from Dekorder, this time the sophomore release by audio/visual extraordinaire Sculpture. This is their second psychophonotropic picture disc LP, and with a little bit of strobe magic and/or a video recorder, you can make the animations come to life. I’m such a sucker for creative LP concepts, and zoetrope picture discs are among the coolest. It helps to back the concept with engaging music.

His eerie modular sounds are sometimes piercing and most other times beautiful, but they are always otherworldly. Its difficult to not imagine these cold, harsh sounds beaming directly from outer space, or accompany lunar walk footage. His work is almost psychedelic at times, and I enjoy the extreme experimental scope. Some tracks meander along, unsure where they’re going like random particles drifting. He’ll come across a sound, expand than recede and continue drifting. It feels like more of a participatory act than blindly listening to your spotify to fill to void of silence.
