Junk Yard by Liam.Arnold published on 2010/08/04 14:06:22 +0000 Machinery erodes, corrodes, breaks and falls apart. Hardware and analogue technology is automatically unique because of its life-expectancy and sensitivity to atmospheric pressures. Individuality comes from chance and randomness, but digital production is self-contained and preserved... Junk Yard is heavily based on reading Neal Stephenson, Warren Ellis and William Gibson too much lately, and is intended as a futurist soundtrack. It's a snapshot of rusted and decayed sound modules; semi-conscious and once cutting-edge tools abandoned as their chemical composition rendered them unpredictable and obsolete. Junk Yard celebrates the hiss, glitch and static and was made using old delay units, loose jack plugs, overdriven samples and Ableton.
