Gerard Herman grapples with an undulance of masked and tarnished sounds—swelling grocery sacks of pulses, plunks, and unwieldy resonances. Musical fragments get caught in a mason jar, and buzz around with building anxiety. On Die paste, die wrong, we’re escorted through a trip down an assembly line of wobbly motifs digested by plastics. Wake just before dawn to catch the blue fade through flowing curtains, evidence of work clinking and humming from a distance. Limber up, takes some vitamins, and start chipping away. Get lost in the wheel grind and the pings of the hopper for a bit, start to have a couple bad ideas. Go to town for a hallucinatory stroll through a street fair, step into a tent and walk through a hall of cracked mirrors and clocks, make a wrong move and get sucked under by a vortex of phantom tones. Emerge to scale a heap of torn armchairs and bicycle parts, plopped onto a conveyor built upon descent. Resolve to relax and listen to the the pistons pump and the whistles blow, gazing into the flickering lights above. Exceptional studies in transformation, nurturing and growing sounds with materials others might all too often use to exploit decay.

Add To Cart
Gerard Herman blubbered his way through a trench
of clay-like melodies that cluttered down the sole of
his run-down sandal and his worn-out shoe. Upon
arriving he sneezed, and Entr’acte opened the door.
