And I love you Otomo...
An important adjunct to the overall character of AWKWARD as I see it
has to do with noise and dissonant dissidence in general. If I choose to
flatter myself, as I will right now, the first issue left a slightly metallic
taste in the mouth - a flavour accented by darkness and laced with a
strangely percolated contemptuousness. There has been a distinct lack
of this element so far in the life of this blog. It has been, perhaps, a little soft.
So, in order to reconcile this disparity, I will be using the audio-bearing
capacity of this page to bring you a musical arrangement I have been
working on, made of other people's work and found-sound samples.
This will be appearing in the next couple of days. All I will say is hold
onto your hats. Its a stinger.
