Pods of Punishment, like parallel collection Seeds of Paradise
(forthcoming on Idle Hands), is a journey into tube-amped
molten bass and media fragments. It reveals Strategy’s strong
science fiction threads and fixation on radio as a musical
medium: its ghostly disembodiment, its persistent familiarity,
and its spontaneous impact on the sounds around it.
Edition of 200 copies.
Untitled (Movements) is inspired by poet and painter
Henri Michaux’s eponymous drawing. It is based on two
layers of synthesiser — one almost unchanging, bar the
natural heat fluctuations of analogue circuitry, and the
other undergoing a slow and subtle metamorphosis —
and collaged clippings of a modified guitar.
