Label: Chocolate Monk
あのチャリンコ演奏集団Portland Bike Ensembleへの参加、Chocolate Monkからは様々な変名を含め通算4枚目のリリースとなるThe OccupantことShane McDonell。レンタカーのラジオより採集した音ネタを中心に、ビオラ、ドラム、カラオケマシンで録音した弓弾きシンバル、音声、シンセサイザー、etc...をミックス、コレだけ複雑な音が入り乱れているにも関わらず妙に統一感のあるアンビエンスが漂う面白いコラージュ長編。60部限定。
Shane McDonell is known round these parts for having his greasy mits involved in Body Has No Head (choc.287), Talc (choc.375) and Delusuional Reality (choc.420) and here we have his first solo ride out for the label under the name The Occupant. Twilight Immunity is two 31 min collages in the traditional sound diary style. Sounds of voice, viola, feedback, drums, drum stick, bowed cymbal recorded through an old karaoke machine combined with radio, rental car radio feedback, river sounds, contact mic'd Broadway Bridge, keyboard/synth, voice sounds, drunken wedding orators and general party chit chat. Slickles captured all this on his trusty handheld tape machine and then for yr listening pleasure cut stuff into loops, collaged it, fed some of it into his psychoacoustic computer to provide a sense of specific sound direction/panning just for YOU. A stud and a gent.
"Shoutouts to the river spirits and the broadway bridge "before sunrise", in Portland OR for providing useful sounds and a muse." - S. McDonell
