Shea Stevenson - Downcycle (CS)
"Downcycle is varied ‘cut-up;’ in the style of early noise acts like Eric Lunde and Entre Vifs….. by way of Alabama.
I really hate trying to describe my music..... most of my noise;
especially the cut-up though, is strongly influenced by the constantly
changing environments of my childhood. My fathers’ schizophrenia
manifested in many ways but technophobia was a particular passion.
Every electronic device had a secondary purpose, each more nefarious
than its stated aim.
I try to bring out this character with sound, like he would; by disassembling them [electronic devices] and stacking them up as “proof.”
PROOF OF WHAT?
That George Bush was electronically murdering my family?
This is the sound of childhood summers wintering in
abandoned bus barns situated in parts that will remain undisclosed
within central Alabama. - Shea Stevenson, 6/2/18"
