Radio Free Robots: Silicone Carne – Art Kill Art 01

January 13th, 2009

Art Kill Art label out of France asks the question “What does it mean to produce vinyl records in the digital era?” The sound artist collective Radio Free Robots explores the possibilities and limitations of vinyl records as a medium for manipulation.

Robotic philosophical ramblings interwoven with noises, beats, glitchy metallic sounds produce a strange, provocative cacophony.

Check!
