The glitch and drop of warp records meets the layered baroque psychedelia of Henry Cow in PcOnTrApTiOn (read: potato-contraption), a mash-up collaborative that pairs the arrangement and production skills of RDunlap with the electro-sonic emanations of Johann Meier. The contraption navigates an audio space where filtered static, disjointed motorik rhythms, frantic electro beats, eno-pads, and the odd robot singer blend together. at turns foreboding, lush, and even uplifting, PcOnTrApTiOn excels primarily at defying your expectations. < /blurb >
Through the eclectic personal tastes and influences of Meier and Dunlap, PcOnTrApTiOn draws from a root system that meanders well beyond the dance and pop lineage of many electronica examples. But the project is also about visceral appeal and engagement, not just “different”.
PcOnTrApTiOn is arranged and mixed by RDunlap from a growing collection of material created by Johann Meier (from short loops to full existing pieces, electronic primarily, but beginning to include some instrumental sources as well, stay tuned), along with his own occasional contribution of synthesizer recordings (if you know what a CZ-101 is, then you should check out trks 2 & 4). This first CD also features vocal samples created by rachMiel on 2 tracks.
