We tracked the signal emanating from the rotary emitter and ended up here…exploring the lab where biological parts are spliced with virally spawned digital mutations.
Toad Blinker is an incautiously assembled amalgam of mutated techno forms, analogue electronics, tape cuts and digital sampling, gleefully twisted psychedelia. It’s a take on computerised music production that rejects tired badges of ‘quality’. It’s fast and cheap, unexplained, joyful, strange, it loves trash and mess and mistakes and too much energy, and revels in accidental collisions.
Sculpture aim to generate an energy greater than the sum of its constituent elements. Dan Hayhurst’s music finds its ideal counterpart in Reuben Sutherland’s animations. Like their previous Rotary Signal Emitter LP (Dekorder, 2010), Toad Blinker is a zoetropic picture disc designed to be filmed at 25fps with a high shutter speed.
