Boomkat Product Review:
Loud Object is visual artist and musician Billy Steiger's second solo album, constructed from a series of violin improvisations processed with samplers.
Inspired by a several-hundred-page draft of Clarice Lispector’s "Água Viva", "Loud Object" is, like the book, considered to be weird and formless. "Its joy is found in its looseness," the press release assures us. "Its meaning found in its lack of definition."
Definition is hard to come by on "Loud Object". It was assembled from six sides of violin improvisations, four of which were eventually canned, with the last two sides added to and processed using samplers. The result is a bizarre, tough to absorb 40 minutes of music that sounds like fingers scraping over an inflated balloon. Free improv, innit.
