IR1S G4RRELFS - BEDR00M SYMPH0N1ES (2014)

There's been a nasty stomach bug circulating. Many of us have spent the past days in bed with nausea, fevers, chills and bodily upheaval. We played music. Some was to relax, promote restfulness and healing. Other times we interrogated or ingested the subject of illness itself, seeking a homeopathic sonic cure. The albums that follow are a mere selection of some of our literally "sickest" albums we played.

Garrelf's strange little classical/experimental outing is as good a place to start as any: chilly/sweaty lo-Fi studies for processed voice, raw sound-art ideas, the wonderful feelings of freedom and isolation that come with private bedroom sequestration. Fever-dreaming starts here.

  1. Sorry to heat you've been sick. We had a similar experience last weekend, but it had to do with a toxic food from local restaurant who'll be receiving a visit from the health department any day now..... Looks like your ears have been busy though. It's hard to keep up, but I appreciate the chance to try.

    1. All on the mend, thanks! The posts were a joint effort--a smattering of music we used to wallow in our collective miseries. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
