Three extended compositions using field recordings and electronic processing from Vanessa Rossetto and Matthew Revert, using obscure references in song titles to mask subtle dovetailing and transitioning of concrete sound and mysterious tones.

Revert, Matthew / Vanessa Rossetto: Earnest Rubbish (erstwhile)

Label: erstwhile    
Released in: USA    

Vanessa Rossetto is a composer, violist and visual artist living in Austin, Texas. She uses primarily chamber instrumentation, field recordings, electronics and a wide array of different objects, exploring them through extended and traditional techniques and other methods of her own devising. Trained as a painter, she seeks the same result in both her visual and sound work: the exposition of overlooked narratives. In 2008, she launched her own CD-R label, Music Appreciation. Through this imprint she has released four solo albums: Misafridal (2008), Imperial Brick (2008), Whoreson in the Wilderness (2008)and the FILE Festival-honored Dogs in English Porcelain (2009). In 2009, she participated in the Recreating the Domain project which was named an Austin Chronicle Best of Austin Critic's Pick and was nominated for Best Public Art in the Austin Critics' Table 2009 awards. Her 2010 cassette release, PDD-NOS, was described by Byron Coley in The Wire as sounding like "being under attack from slow-moving dune worms." In November 2010, Graham Lambkin's Kye Records released the 12" LP Mineral Orange. In September 2011 she performed a duo set with Lambkin at Amplify 11 in New York City. Her second LP for Kye, Exotic Exit, was released in September 2012 and Temperament as Waveform, a collaboration with Manchester based artist Lee Patterson, will be released in January 2013 by Another Timbre.

Matthew Revert is an author, exploring the absurdity of everyday life and the hopelessness of being human. Themes of sexual failure, body horror, destructive relationships and gender identity often play a roll in his work. This is intermingled with a thread of dark tragicomedy. His first book, A Million Versions of Right, was released in 2009 by LegumeMan and earned a Wonderland Book award nomination. It has garnered a strong following amongst the mustard set and has received praise for its width. In 2010, stories from A Million Versions of Right (as well as new work) appeared in the Bizarro Starter Kit (purple). Matthew resides in Melbourne, Australia. Outside of writing, he works as a graphic designer and spends time recording music under a variety of aliases.
