I am sitting at my home computer listening to some of the coolest, weirdest sound art on a site called 8bitrecs. The list of artists on this label encompasses lots of different electronic experimental music, from squeaky blip-hop, to ambient post-techno, to sampled and altered field recordings (like water dripping off a melted iceberg) to “ethnographic forgeries”. Some of the absolutely most befuddling and intriguing stuff I’ve heard in a while.
London, which appears to be the epicenter of the sound art multiverse, even has a radio station dedicated to the genre. (If you can call it a genre, that is.)
Yeah, this stuff is pretty weird. Way too weird to make it into any store near me. Now I can explore new sonic vistas over the web. I love the Internet.
