Hour 2 [MP3]
     


 


Vertical Lines A began in earnest back in 2005 with a mostly uneventful Friday field-recorded across a stack of 23 hour-long cassettes, each one tagged with a number corresponding to its order of recording. Once committed to tape, I began the process of deconstructing that day and recompiling the fragments into music, one cassette at a time. This is where the titles come from—each song’s sound source material is drawn from the corresponding cassette. And save for a few notable moments, all the album’s music is drawn from the cassettes; it’s mostly devoid of actual instrumentation and nearly all of it is either diced moments from the cassettes or my voice. And exactly a year later, after a detailed process of digitally slicing, sifting, layering and interpreting, Vertical Lines A sat there blinking and awake. So, as you listen to each minute go by, you’re not only hearing the music itself, but also 11 condensed hours in field recordings, and a year’s worth of thought and effort. While Vertical Lines A is fully autonomous as its own creature, it’s actually just one solidified half of an eventual two-album project, the second half still phantom.” -– Caleb Mueller, Decomposure

This week: A computer is found that dates back all the way to dinosaur times.  All it takes is an enterprising friend and some weird science for this week’s episode to become truly bizarre.
