Electric Bird Noise

The Spider / The Christ Child / The Crow

Electric Bird Noise: The Spider / The Christ Child / The Crow (Silber)

Guitarist Brian McKenzie is known best for his dramatic rock persona, where his multi-instrumental approach to song-writing shows great skill; on this album, McKenzie gets down to the guitar itself, with loops, effects and electronics creating a cohesive set of 9 pieces that maintain an edgy, discordant approach to enthralling sound.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"If I stuck out a press release saying this was an undiscovered 1960's spin-off created by tripped out off-duty members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, there's a strong chance that people would believe me (assuming they didn't google it). It's a warm piece of organic, analogue-feeling but not excessively lo-fi, sinister avantgarde performance, with slow guitar loops at its core. With filmic reverb, uncomfortable drunken flange-like note-twisting and Lygeti-esque sustained choral-ish high notes and some elements played in reverse, it's a familiar enough set of ingredients but sincerely mixed.

Though split into nine relatively short parts (numbered "twenty seven" to "thirty five", albeit with the letters reversed), it's a coherent 33-minute-long work that could be regarded as one piece in nine stanzas; no one piece breaks or challenges the tone. "Thirty one" (sorry, "eno ytriht") is the most complete standalone piece that develops within itself, many of the others are little more than one evolving loop, but it flows well, especially the heightening tension in the finale "evif ytriht". Described in the press release as "discordant chorded minimalist guitar jazz music for art galleries", I wouldn't challenge that, especially with the emphasis on discordant."-Stuart Bruce, Chain D.L.K.


Artist Biographies:

"For the past two years one of the primary facets of Electric Bird Noise has been the discordant chorded minimalist guitar jazz music for art galleries of Kind of Black, Birth, & Follow the Star & The Spider.The Christ Child...The Crow continues this series with chords fingered by spiders, plucked by crows, & built for The Christ Child. It's not a horror movie, it's a celebration!"

-Brian McKenzie 12/8/2017
