Remix Artist Statement
A Bashful Droid
Here is a little bit about the piece: A Bashful Droid is about taking digital information, and turning it into a recreated, yet distorted physical manifestation of itself, or a corrupted clone, perhaps. This is the sci-fi-esque storyline of the piece, and also a description of the technical process behind it using digital processing, tape cassettes, audio transducers, and a tenor banjo. The banjo is reanimated by the stems of the original trumpet and drum tracks, they themselves having already taken their own journey of transformation. A Bashful Droid into glimpses of the line between electronic and acoustic, and that of memory and embodiment.

This record at times is the sum of its parts and the strength of its parts. At times, you can plainly tell the player from 100 yards away with your eyes closed, but then you can hear them echoing the ghosts of those who came before them. An incredibly brilliant record from 3 master blasters! pjnewman-364
