Kirk Cosby – Dreams In The Absence Of Oxygen (2011)



  • Experimentalism 
  • Sound collage 
  • Sampledelic 
  • Avant-garde 
  • Plunderphonics

Comment: these 6 pieces within a 45 minute are up there to unhinge and irritate a listener. Of course, it is a glorious whole made up of original samples though these samples used to come out from very disparate sources. From spoken word ones to more tranquil electronic sounds, moody jazz samples and earnest singing and on the other side you can perceive monotonous drumming and short wave frequencies and austere hiss extractions to be added to this informative melting pot. Of course, mention must be given to other minutiae as well you can hear in the mix. Recently I reviewed The Fucked Up Beat`s brand new one Insomnie which may be similar to it. Especially at Stimuli Unconsciously, and asdf Space you can perceive parallels with it. Otherwise the whole chimes in a more haphazard, in a more convulsive way. It can be described as an instance of disruptive and insubordinate music. From earlier times with regard to the artists it bears a resemblance with the likes of People Like Us, and Ergo Phizmiz. In the absence of oxygene I guess dreams come first for some minutes and then to be ready to die thereafter. But you should relax (by citing one of the phrases from the issue). The tricky outing is a part of the discography of mind-provoking imprint Vaatican Records.
