"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?

Maybe.

Regardless:

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"

Listen.
