After her triumphant “core” series was wrapped up with the invention of “corecore”, Buttress was determined to be the first to go beyond it. So, while others were still trying to come to terms with the concepts behind “corecore”, she created the mind-bending new genre “post-corecore”. Not only does this album apply the tools and strategies developed in the “core” trilogy to works by artists such as Yes, Rihanna, Madonna, and the B-52’s, but it again extends the “core” genre with the inclusion of heart-breaking MOR ballads, stretched noisescapes, drone-based live material, and her infamous Windows-cracking track that was used to close the documentary “Steal this Film II”. Interwebmegalink-approved.

The final in her “core” trilogy, “CoreCore” again revels in the grunting syncopation of breakcore, but mixes it with an altogether softer touch. As well as the classic Public-Enemy-meets-the-Seinfeld-theme opening track, O’Kneel incorporates several of her more psychedelic-drone live tracks (created with a CDJ and a buncha guitar pedals). Although, there’s still plenty of filthy breakcore (including the cookie-monster-metal-mashup “C is For Satan”), this final in the “core” trilogy sees her wrapping up the series with a focus on what breakcore can become, rather than what it already is.

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.
