Sissy Spacek – Gong CS

$8.00

2nd edition

‘Noise’ as it has come to be known has reached an apex. Or perhaps more accurately, has surpassed its apex. The forms, traditions, and expectations inherent in abstract sound design / abuse have been beyond established, and now promptly shattered. No longer is it unknown or shocking to hear blasts of harsh, destroyed audio or obfuscated sample manipulation – Even mainstream artists and film makers use and abuse these devices to near expert-pop level proficiency at times. Thankfully, artists such as Sissy Spacek pay these trends, forms, and expectations absolutely no mind- and have in quite respectively in their own way been a large leading force in the transcendence of what ‘is’ noise / avant-garde sound today. Completely unhinged, yet under absolute control, Gong spews forth a myriad of highly listenable, intricate, and at times painful, serene, and beautifully deranged sonic territories – The sounds of a buried and rusted grindcore drenched free improv group being ripped apart by a trash compactor. Ancient decayed tape music juxtaposed against maximum fidelity blasts and beyond focused micro edits that expose every free-form accident and intended artifact in a glorious cacophony surpassing anything presented before in such a realm. Noise is finally free. -BH
