Surrogate Activity – Old Growth [Imploding Sounds]

Number 6   5/30/2021   A Library

unknown entity from Dublin who applies an ecological perspective from the rapidly disappearing old growth of ancient woodland, the loss of which no doubt is expressed in the multilayered three part saga of two possibilities: 1. the sound of the invader’s attack on its own sustenance over thousands of years ℅ virulent homo sapiens, in less than an hour or 2. the cries of indigenous deciduous oak over the same period of time compressed into less than an hour.  we hope that all three parts capture the struggle between them until the end of our time here on earth.  the first track, named after the last surviving fragment of the great Oak Woods of Tinahely, serves as a harsh noise introductory wall that doesn’t give you a chance to pretend you are interested in your wake of destruction but assimilates your city bred ennui with a jolt of forest spite that sprays its interlopers with a fog of genocidal repellant that will only exist in dreams while disembodied voices of the dying human species is relished and celebrated with the only kind of joy that a hate forest can feel moving to the second track named after a formerly predominant wooded area that is nearly extinct with the exception of a few restoration projects such as the namesake of the thrid track, Abbyleix, where the midlands bog locals defiantly stopped the municipal excavation assault. one can now feel the roars of minor victory from this eternal conflict for mastery or perhaps an eventual leveling off into inaudible commensal equilibrium
