about

The tension between improvisation and structure. Happy accidents and unexpected connections. Ritual. DIY technology. Desolate spaces and the eeriness of dusk.

Jindabyne is an EP formed of improvisation. Improvisation that's experiencing some kind of identity crisis. A melding of acoustic drums, voice and the machine. The machine, comprising of linked, tiny synth boxes, was controlled by MIDI. MIDI that's constantly being mutated by other non-deterministic boxes within the machine.

Are we willing to cede control to the machine? Sam Price constructed his own machine with the express purpose of sonifying this rubric. The modules that comprise this new machine are controlled by pseudo-random data of near infinite possibilities but the parameters being modulated are as old as music itself – pitch, note length, volume and timbre. The challenge is to make sense of the data flow to lend form to the sound and form in turn bringing finality, the end of possibility.

Following a road trip to that uncanny, beautiful town Jindabyne, the material was recorded in a shed and mixed in a sauna in a ritualised paradigm of one track per week, all live to hard disc, single takes. The end result hopefully belies its process.
