Dilloway, Aaron / Lescalleet, Jason – “Grapes and Snakes” – [Pan]
First time collaborators Aaron Dilloway and Jason Lescalleet come together to create something brand new of many things old. No modular synths, or clean loops for these two underground experimental noise artists. Analog synthesizers, reel to reel and 8-track are manipulated, broken and re-created for the listeners hazy trip. Side A opens with a slow burn of dark drone synth, degrading and distorting with low frequency sounds. The final minutes unceremoniously pierce your brain with an intense anxiety filled climax. Side B White noise shrouded crashes, groaning feedback loops this side long set which builds to an equilibrium distorting crescendo. A writhing, and somewhat terrifying blackness fills the air, yet finishes in a most unpredictable warmth of sound.
