After her explorations into bastard pop (her previous two albums were “Bastard Pop” and “MegaBastard”), Buttress wanted to return to the minutely-sliced memetic Frankenstein-techniques she had honed so well on her second Compop release “MegaMegamix”, but with an ear more attuned to artists like Squarepusher and Aphex Twin. As she describes it, she “wanted to push bastard pop into the shape of drum-n-bass, or something”, using artists like Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, the Black Eyed Peas, and Kelis as source material. Both poppy and jarring, both revolutionary and sentimental, this may be her most iconic and unique recording to date.

AF029 - Wake Up and Listen - Thoughts Flash

Thoughts Flash

Download MP3 (25 MB) FLAC (61 MB)

Thoughts Flash comprises two hallucinatory tracks from Wake Up and Listen’s unreleased debut album. Recorded in the late 1990s, the album featured a number of studio recordings, as well as edited excerpts from WUAL’s long-running radio show on 2MBS-FM. The technique of condensing extended radio improvisations into relatively short pieces, as on these two tracks, suggested a fruitful direction for the duo, however Bertram and O’Neill spent the following years focusing on other projects, with WUAL continuing primarily as a live act (their 2001 mini-album Mustard Keanu notwithstanding). WUAL’s recorded archives are nevertheless extensive, and it is likely that more material will be published on their website as well as on future Alias Frequencies releases.

The pieces on this album were created using a specially designed system code-named “Habitat”. Autonomous artificial agents feed on live and prepared sound and vision, excreting their own mutated variations which are then collected and presented for listener edification. The process is the culmination of combined research by Paul and Lloyd in the construction of a live electro-acoustic audiovisual engine that draws from both academic and underground practices. All material presented was originally generated live and has been edited only to remove fatty excesses.

These are the sounds received from our first interdimensional probe, Asmoir. This probe is exploring unknown and unheard somewheres, elsewheres. Whilst much of the data received from the probe is proving to be, for the time being, nonsensical, auditory recordings are proving to be of interest. It is not known if these recordings are accurate representations of the ‘sound’ in these locations.
