introducing IMMUTE by Georgia. The New York duo of Brian Close and Justin Tripp have been releasing music from their Chinatown studio, since 2012. Under the alias Georgia they make a sound which combines tech and tradition. Their compositions created by two hits of improvisation. Where live jams are further edited and processed. Gracing labels such as Belgium’s Meakusma, and London`s FTD. Producing super limited cassettes for France`s Good Morning Tapes, and Kashual Plastik in Germany. These global collaborations reflecting Georgia’s particular reworking of the “World Music” genre. Their approach resulting in the acclaimed All Kind Music, on NYC`s Palto Flats, and participation in Emotional Response`s respected Schleißen Series. Now comes Immute, for Ekster.
Amphistoc is an idiophone deconstruction. Where steel tongues are struck, and microtones ring. Keys whistling like woodwinds in a hyperreal virtual landscape. One of machine-made “organics”. Like a 3D-printed rainforest. On Tecmonc a gamelan orchestra resonates. Rippling like wind chimes. While binary buzzes, disrupt its data stream, and busy molecules fall in bit-mapped showers. Bendires Thrasher focuses on the voice. Creates a choir of manipulated gender. Their sighs rising on currents of vapor-like drift. Endocrync shimmies, rumbas, shakes its arse. A percussive sound design Samba. Cutting up field-recorded chatter. Its hardware honking like Free-Jazz skronk. High Light Filter blows on a Blues harp, and overheard conversations are rearranged into a Psychedelic symphony. Blasted by a bottom-end heavy post-drum-and-bass battery. A Mutant Motorik of pin-point precision percussion. The closing Aoesdawas marks a return to the serene. A gentle peal of bells, as if buoyed by the tides. Its heart still beating irregular after the rush.
These creative combinations akin to automatic writing, and painting. Unlocking a Surreality that lies within the real, but which cannot normally be perceived. Constructing curious Cubist / Futurist shapes. The sonic equivalent of Dali`s attempts to visualize Quantum Mechanics. Chemical reactions. Like opening the drawers of the Giraffe Venus. Ransacking The Anthropomorphic Cabinet. (words: Robert Harris)
