Radio Free Robots: Silicone Carne – Art Kill Art 01

No Comments

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. The white 12” is packaged with a lengthy perforated paper printout that lists a lot of technical information such as what computers and other equipment was used to produce the robot voices, when these various sound collages were performed and a statement of purpose written in several languages. The external sleeve robot graphic is one visualization of robots of the future, while the inside graphic charts frequencies and sound levels over time (cycles per second). Non-music, experimental collage, spoken word, rhythmic dissonance, or something entirely different? A radio show transmission recording or electronic sound performance? Robotic philosophical ramblings interwoven with noises, beats, glitchy metallic sounds produce a strange, provocative cacophony.
