Boomkat Product Review:
Raw as heck computer music by Pert, WA’s James Bradbury on a Hecker/Haswell/Fell type fuckry
‘Extension’ was recorded and mixed in the UK’s avant hotspot Huddersfield and acts as the artist’s response to his previous work, ‘Interferences’ - an experiment in messing with sferic electromagnetic sounds that are found in the ether all around us. These eight new works were picked intuitively on the basis of generated sounds and structures that snagged Bradbury’s ear, and maybe yours, too.
We could compare them to wobbles squabbling in a straightjacket underwater, or artistic window cleaners with martial squeegee skills as heard from the other side of the glass, as much as the sound of an ancient modem brought back to life = proper screwball stuff that has no narrative and scant human intervention, just mental sounds for the sheer pleasure of it.
