#24: Instinct Control - 'Triplete'
Another colleague or fellow midwestern musician... this is mostly included because I bought the album at the live show after being sort of astounded.
The live performance is where Instinct Control will totally explode your mind. A sound generated by a reel to reel making feedback loops, strapped around a guy's neck and tweaked out by knobbery. I bought this CD album at the show and have just recently started listening to it.
If you like or accept atonal, non-musical extremely weird sounds, be sure to check it out... otherwise, avoid it like the plague, it is way off the beaten path. This is definitely abnormal material... but scientifically generated; demonstrating the interior workings of sound itself.
When I saw it live it was at a wonderful noise and weird music fest in Rock Island, IL, called Weirdtown. My band Ampyre got to play it (check us out!) and Instinct Control was one of the later or even headliner acts. Very cool and intense stuff.
The live performance made the room, speakers, mixer, everything, seem like it was melting. A palpable electrical smell was in the air, and maybe the mixer WAS actually melting a bit. The western IL venue Rozz Tox has not seem to have reported any mixer melting out of the usual, so I guess it is ok.
If you like feedback and loop manipulation on an advanced scale, this is can't miss material. Exotic, even otherwordly sounds await... just on the other side of this dimension, through the electrical portal.
