Mudboy/Auk Theatre – “Mudboy/Auk Theatre” – [Dnt Records]

cinder   5/14/2010   A Library, CD

Mudboy is an experimental artist from Providence Rhode Island, while Auk Theatre was created by Irene Moon, currently in Florida. I think this was recorded in 2006?, originally on cassette (the tracks have that lovely hissssssing in the background).
Track one begins with a clarinet and a keyboard, almost sounding like they’re practicing scales. Then Auk comes in with some spoken words. It trips out for a bit, then slides into a vintage relaxing beachside Hawaiian cocktail tune, complete with warpage, ticking clocks and bells. Even a treat from Rod Serling? Oh yes. Track goes all over the place!
Track two gives more mellow vibes. Snaps and mumbles. Ocean waves and black birds chirping. A hypnotic beat in the background. This track is better for those who like the more melodic, rhythmic types of experimental sounds.
