Release Notes

 


The Hyper Sonic Resonator - Blind Man’s Buff [tsa-034]


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.

Vintage Warrior Review:


Mr Eddy & The Hyper Sonic Resonator - Kings College, Birmingham.


The lights go down & we are presented with a silent hand-show, they are ladies hands, painted & unbitten, a kind of shadow play ensues, sleek hands, cut to the outline of a record deck, the hand lifts the needle & makes contact. We hear the click of the groove; the lights go up a little to reveal the group, silhouetted against the screen four guys on keyboards & percussion. 


The set starts off in a kind of cocktail lounge mood, with comic lines from old films & TV. It’s difficult to tell where the tracks float into each other with the visuals, but patterns & motifs begin to emerge & form. There is a natural switch in groove to a more Krautrock feel & its not obvious where this is all going. There is some murderous screaming on the screen, a woman in Greek mask enacts grief...& slowly as her wails fade, a sea-shanty dub is picked out. Mr Eddy floats and dissolves battleships in black & white whose guns twist into trees which twists into jungle & once again the groove picks up to tribal techno as a native boy is chased through the forest by an unseen pursuer, the set ends as the pursued boy makes his escape over a waterfall.


Best described as tripped-out surrealist sideshow, The Hyper Sonic Resonator give us a fantastical account, a bizarre musical wandering, terrifying & utterly compelling, with stunning visuals by the witty Mr Eddy.


This terminalstation release is bought to you in association with Leg Iron Productions 2010
