ELEVENELEVEN :: 23 LUCAS DARKLORD

Lucas Darklord

Guest Programmer
Lucas Darklord

Based in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Lucas Darklord oversees the world’s largest unlisted company and holds radical views on the future of capitalism and life both within and without cultural and social constraints.

When asked to curate this broadcast, Lucas Darklord decided to, broadly, serve a selection of sounds that Eleven11 listeners may not have heard before. After being confounded by the petty limits of time and duration, Lucas Darklord settled on broadcasting excerpts in favour of complete works. After months of solid research, a machine was devised to play pieces of the selected works, where the machine makes the decisions about when to stop and start a work. The results are not any form of destructive remix, merely the most restraint Lucas Darklord is capable of.

Podcast: All Together Wrong

What is on this podcast? Trials, plan B’s, errors and rehearsals, leftovers and whoulda-coulda-shouldas, the stuff remaining under the wet hood: the little fellas that didn’t make it. Sketches, leftovers and drafts: an amalgam of wrongs.

These 11 tracks date from 1999 til 2009, since “bounced” they are no longer editable (a couple are mis-mixes from “Smile Hunter”). They are the elaborate trials of my inner professional artistoid, working the “crashing patching and doodling of doing”, on some very nice afternoons (obviously with the intention of making of all the right mistakes) next to the roaches and fliers and the hope filled tool bags of the sleepwalking artisan.

AF039 – BOK Darklord

BOK Darklord

Download MP3 (228 MB) FLAC (557 MB)

Quite possibly one of the greatest albums ever made, this untitled release is the meeting of two of Australia’s most interesting, most underground, and most belligerently misanthropic sound-artists. Any collaboration between Buttress O’Kneel, with her sample-happy postpop cheeky-as-a-schoolgirl breakmashing, and Lucas Darklord, with his dark grinding corporate evil-as-a-business-retreat scrapescapes, was sure to be extreme. But their decision to cover the entirety of Led Zeppelin’s fourth album, track by track, using no source-material but the original songs themselves, makes an extremity that will perhaps awaken the sleeping Rock Gods, dormant since Bonham’s untimely vomit-inhaling demise. A rock-purist’s worst nightmare, and a sample-police’s greatest dream, this album marks the year 2009 as a year when THINGS CHANGED.

Now FUCKEN ROCK!

Guest Programmer
Kptmichigan (Hillentrup, Germany)

Michael Beckett is kptmichigan, a musician and producer who loves guitars, totally dislikes programming and finds the term experimental somewhat dodgy. As kptmichigan, he has released 4 albums, the newest being the experimental 10 Self-Modulating Loops Made Whilst Fasting, released on the label MirrorWorldMusic that he and friend Schneider TM run.

About the podcast: This podcast features a bunch of stuff from friends to people that time has forgotten…The weird and the wonderful. I allowed myself to add random stuff to and between some of the tracks, even creating new music especially for this podcast. Listen loud / Listen deep.

AF038 – Buttress O’Kneel – Compact Scipppp

Compact Scipppp

Download MP3 (157 MB) FLAC (290 MB)

In the year 2000, Buttress O’Kneel (with the help of her housemates at the time, fellow artists Mantis Sage, Aynat Sool, Panthera Leo, and A D MacHine) began documenting the artistic works of several robots that had achieved unprogrammed sentience. These robots were never designed to be creative, but, perhaps through simple wear and tear, commonplace quantum occurrences, or perhaps through their own dogged persistence, these robots began displaying artistic musickal tendencies, reworking and remixing standard CDs into stuttering, abstracted comments on modern humyn culture. Every night, as the humyns sat down in front of the stereo and attempted to play some musick, the robots would take over and present them with an astounding improvised glitchfest of cultural detournement and live sonic manipulation. Thankfully for us, Buttress and her friends have captured much of those heady A.I. jam sessions for us to enjoy to this day.
