Insufficient Complexity (2009)

For the RPM challenge, I decided to do an experiment and make an ambient album. Each morning in February I created a new sound and posted it to my blog, mainsequenceblog.com. On the last night before the album was due, I combined all the sounds into 37+ minutes of sonic craziness. My hope was to create something that could help block out the madness of a world falling apart (financially at least)--like a helmet of sound for your mind. HYDROPHOBE is one section of the piece--if you want to just listen to something short.

BIOGRAPHY

Main Sequence uses sounds from a variety of sources and combines them with heavy drums and electronic noises to make music that will make you think. If you're stuck in a cubicle like me, put these songs on, pretend like you're busy, and zone out into a parallel universe. Old records, leaky sinks, the neighbor’s wind chimes—Main Sequence will take any type of sound, mix in a bit of drums, and make music that will make you think. These songs appropriate the words of others, long gone, to tell new stories about our Brave New World. If you’re stuck in a cubicle like me, put your headphones on, pretend like you’re busy, and zone out into a parallel universe.
