MP3 Rubber Band Banjo - Hypermutator
Constructed using heavy tweaking of electronic sounds, guitar percussion, shortwave radio, and natural recordings. This album purposely fuses and jumps between IDM, krautrock, jazz, video game music, cut-ups, drums ''n'' bass, dub, sci-fi themes, & no-wave

This is the third full-length album from Rubber Band Banjo and is being released by MEME (Michigan Electronic Music Exchange) Records (https://www.tradebit.com), based in Lansing, Michigan. Two tracks (''Voltage Clamp'' and ''Blue Orgone'') appear on the MEME Records compilation ''Proletarian Science Fiction'', being sold on CD Baby.
Loosely inspired by the mechanisms of evolutionary change in bacteria with high mutation rates, this album can be loved even if you are not a biology dork. Waveforms, like DNA sequences, can be mutated by substitutions, deletions, insertions, inversions, transpositions, etc. If waveforms are like organisms, then a song can be imagined as organisms existing individually or together at any given time. The evolution of each song may be likened to an ecosystem where organisms are mutating randomly and non-randomly in time and space.
Also being sold on CD Baby is the second Rubber Band Banjo album ''Gather Your Junk Together'', a multi-genre jumping fiasco. The first album ''Hybrid Musical Organisms'', bloop-bleepy Perrey and Kingsley meets Mr. Bungle Nintendo-esque music, is only sold at https://www.tradebit.com.
