The Society Finch has never lived in the wild. The bird’s entire history can be considered caged, amongst people. And while there’s something romantic about the idea of them all circling above a mountaintop parade, it might be even more satisfying to imagine them, over the next 15 minute ascent, in their own ceremony, finally marrying the outside world.

But we can perceive as if we were [born yesterday], brainwaving to the huge roaring presence of all that surrounds. Landon Speers reaches this frequency (again) on the new track below, matched up with a photo taken out his snowy window above. Also shared is a heightened take on that earlier particle process.

His site is a place of eye candy and headaches, do click around.



There’s a chance it sounds like a different process to you. The beauty is in chance. To me, it’s a reset button, where particles swirl back to optimal form, where all can be silenced and then sent to harmony once again.

Toronto based artist Landon Speers is Headaches. His latest composition comes with words:

“The track is one form of a semi-improvisational piece that can be played with many different outcomes. In an effort to utilize aleatoric writing, I put together 96 samples from a shitty Casio keyboard. I arranged into eight groups of twelve melodic elements ranging from lows to highs. Each group can be played/programmed separately or in unison with any other of the eight groups. Altering how samples are played the piece can take on various forms; from slow and droning to fast and percussive, thus rendering the potential for as many ways to perform it as there are chances too.”

A previous cassette is available digitally through this post at Friends With Both Arms.
