“Iâ€™ve been sitting on this one for way to long. Shortly after their phenomenal Theatre Intangible improv, sound artists FUN sent me their variations on the episode. What can you do with 20 minutes of textural noises? If youâ€™re FUN, the answer is quite a lot! They sliced, diced, chopped, and recontextualized the audio (even using my voice during the level checks), turning an already great improv into an EPIC audio journey, the Leaves Of Grass of noise collage. The result is like nothing weâ€™ve ever released. Fan of field recording, sound art, audio collage, and artists such as Merzbow and Davenport will love this. Iâ€™m proud to be a part of it.” – Tony Youngblood
Philadelphia noise band FUN (Mat Rademan & Jonny Wray) team up with local circuit-guru Derek Schartung (Malocchio) for two very different improvs. On the first, FUN plays hydrophones submerged in water, contact mics, grunts, groans, and several timbres impossible to chart. Derek plays saxophone, balloon, and more. On the second improv, local artists Eamon Tewell and Ren join the three, each armed with an AM/FM radio.
