The new disc For the Boss (Beta-Lactam Ring Records) from the Textile Orchestra is almost a musical equivalent of Katamari: the ball starts rolling, picking up chunks of random textures, sounds, stumbling around an arena of collected percussion, mangled musique concrète, turntables, squawks, David Attenborough blurts, who knows what else, and finally turns into a complete shitstorm monster of thinly-spliced chaos hitting the windshield like a million metallic bugs. This lengthy MP3 was recorded in Paris in 2004 and features Alexandre Bellenger (turntables), Arnaud Rivière (mixing board/electrophone), Dan Warburton (violin) and Aaron Moore (drums/percussion). Moore is also of legendary soundshapers Volcano the Bear, and appears as a guest on Daniel Blumin's WFMU program this Sunday night at midnight. Thanks to Aaron and Chris from BLR.
