Welcome to the dawn of uneasy listening.
Experimental electronica, live orchestral instruments and avant-garde beats collide creating some of “the most inventive music you’re likely to hear” (Dancenova.com)
delivered with the kind of startling musical backing that veers between glacial electronics and grinding, industrial jazz.
Automated Acoustics is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist. In addition to providing vocals, he plays autoharp, cello, mbira (thumb piano), organ, Pixiano, drums, steelpan, percussion, piano, keys/synth, guitar, bass, Singapore whistle, beatboxing, body percussion & guitar. Also recently using his home made electromagnetic resonator on anything that makes a noise.
There’s not one sample to be found – always taking the time to record found sounds on the trusty portable recorder before manipulating them into new territory. Every Automated Acoustics track has a multitude of memories embedded in the recording. Proper blood, sweat & tears stuff.
The Automated Acoustics sound uses crusty instruments, picking them up from charity shops and car-boot sales, and modifying and repairing them to his satisfaction. He also collaborates with various female vocalists & other musicians.
After releasing several independent records on his own label Alternative Blueprint Records Automated Acoustics became engrossed in the other side of the music industry as chief engineer for Fat As Funk Mastering. Over the years he has clocked up a good roster of industry clients all over the world & has been responsible for the sound of some records you have probably boogied on down with.
Thank you for listening.
