ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We just finished our first EP. Rorac and I have been making music and noise together for many years. He lives in Sacramento and now I live in Santa Cruz. This is the first project we have sent files back and forth over the interwebs. The Eye of Scrat is a DIY oscillator fed through a Roland ME-50. Something I have used for awhile under the pseudonym, “Green Jesus”. I send Rorac improvisational sketches to which he drums. He records and mixes those and sends them back to me. Scrat may be an instrument of sorts, but other than that and drums there are no other conventional instruments. Scrat is experimental, improvisational noise for sure, but it is also very much Musique Concrete. Each track features a single tape loop and samples of field recordings recorded with my phone and portable recorder. As of yet, I have only used my own recordings for sampling. Some of the samples won’t be recognizable for what they really are. For instance, in the track – “Volume”, I have used three different Elephant Seal samples. The tape loops were all made from the band Yello’s, “Stella”. Rorac’s wife, Stacy did the artwork.
