Computer Chess Documentary Film Review (United States, 2013)

An abysmal effort in attempting to bring meaning to style, Computer Chess goes no further than a tedious exercise in stretching (bad) ideas until they tear. The film’s major selling point is that it was filmed using ancient video cameras, documentary style, in order to capture the spirit of the wild frontier of technology in...Read...

Tuva’s Meridian of Musicality, Spirituality, and Cross-Cultural Place: A Primer On Tuvan Throat Singing

“Music is the art of the intonated sense; the sound, the groan, the cry and the song where the aural quintessence of the spiritual world of human beings. The aura that personifies sound is transparent through timbre and tone, envelops and tightens the other side of sound, the space of meanings and feelings.” - Sainkho...

Julian Lynch – Gloves Music Video

In Julian Lynch’s music video for “Gloves”, bizarre idea after bizarre idea is executed in fairly mundane settings. All of it might be a bit harder to swallow or a bit more trite if the video were just slightly more static — but its glittery lighting brilliance and creeping zoom shots somehow make its awkwardness...Read...

Leven Signs – Hemp Is Here Album Review

Leven Signs Hemp Is Here Digitalis (2013 Reissue; 1985) Some records are made before their time.

Fat White Family Champagne Holocaust Trashmouth Records My first listen of Fat White Family’s debut, Champagne Holocaust, left me thinking of notorious criminal Charles Manson. No sense emerged from this until my thoughts turned to the stark contrast, chasm even, between the monstrousness of Manson and the majesty of his music: deranged yet lucid, at...Read...

ERAAS – “Crescent” / “Ghost” Music Videos

The music video for “Crescent” is a bizarre piece of work, minimal and almost Lynchian in feel, without much going on save for slow movements and small textural or geometric changes. Directed by Nick Criscuolo, it opens with what look like paintings roaring, like unbridled fires, to be followed by the slow morphing between some...Read...

Miguel Baptista Benedict – Super(b)-Child-Ran Album Review

Miguel Baptista Benedict Super(b)-Child-Ran Alpha Pup Records (Brainfeeder), 2013 Often, when an album arrives pre-labelled with the epithet “outsider music”, one has to brace oneself for what might be an incoherent and self-indulgent cacophony. Mercifully, this is not the case with this collection of tracks tracing the musical evolution of Miguel Baptista Benedict. Summarizing and...Read...
