Troy Schafer – Untitled No. 1 [7"]


Label: Signal Dreams

Format: 7”

Year: 2014

“Here, as a slave to incessant cultural artifacts that pervade my imagination, I have surrendered my familiarity of organic proportions to pneumatic systems. On Side A, I altered a palette of sonorous events thrust from their originary sources, mangling 36 hours of long-form, freely associative material into six mutant minutes.

Out of respect for the dead, I choose not to expound on side B. Such has been my absurd attempt to document - and cope with - genetic memory while composing practical new language through schizophonic and gestural appeal."
