Fanfic Telepresence is a 20 minute documentary configuration of everyday cornucopia, tapes and synthesizer gnarl, conversational fragments, observations, juxtapositions, sensory punchlines, redirected energy, pattern, speculation.
We made this for Channel9319062‘s DREAM APPOLCALYPSE, streamed live 8 September 2020. What you see changes what you hear and what you hear changes what you see. Structure, harmony and discord come and go. It’s a (time) travelogue made in lockdown. Objects and situations lose their original meaning and communicate something else. The music is electromechanical. The pause control of a Uher 4000 tape recorder (Education Authority Unit) sees heavy action. Entities transmit by telepresence, inhabit places, objects and organisms, impersonate themselves.
Projected Music is a 5-inch zoetrope picture disc containing 26 locked grooves. Each loop is 1.33 seconds in duration cut at 45rpm reaching a total playing time of 34.58 seconds although the loops are intended to be played at any speed. In the possession of two or more disks, the listener can interact with a modular album whereby the source material is open to interpretation. Despite its minimalist size and composition, this release is intended as an LP. With the expansive nature of the turntable, there are almost limitless possibilities.
Remixes by Maria Chavez, Philip Jeck, Janek Schaefer, Mariam Rezaei, Me, Claudius, Graham Dunning and Tom Richards accompany the 5-inch as a free download. All 8 remixes are also available as a standalone digital release, Projected Reworks.

Recorded during our mind fraying (for us at least) 3 day audio/visual installation/performance in the Funkhaus Berlin for Ableton Loop, November 2017. Thanks everyone who dropped by the Polymedia Studio for some auxiliary perceptual stimulation.
Earlier, in the heated upstairs, gnarly drums/analogue synthesizer and bass duo, Temperatures, rubbed air molecules through an organisation of translucent perspex. Afterward, we obtained this recording in the cold subterranean gallery, between frigid water feature, geometric functional items, and moire patterned suspensions.
