hsr - Blind Man's Buff
Format: File, MP3
Released: 22 May 2010
Personnel: Neil Wright, Antony Cooke, Tilner Barlow
Engineered by Philip Daine
Visual collaboration with Ed George.
Recorded & improvised on vintage synths & samplers at Kings College, Birmingham, UK.
The Hyper Sonic Resonator’s third musical offering, & second terminalstation release, Blind Man’s Buff emerges out of live projects & shows performed during 2009.
Composed as a four-part fugue with strange segues & voices drifting in, linking up, looping & punctuating throughout, The Hyper Sonic Resonator’s Blind Man’s Buff is an odyssey of sound; a bizarre, hilarious & occasionally frightening take on the genre of musical improvisation.
The sound comes from a Steptoe-like, Thrift-Shop pillage of vintage equipment: dusting off the DX7, circuit-bending the Crumar string section, illegal 8-bit sampling raids, the resuscitation of ancient-relic analogue synths, & recombining & re-wiring these sacred objects & cultural artefacts with HSR’s usual irreverent black humour.
