(dream noize, conjured rhythms)
a noise-driven, dilated dream of celestial vocals, sleepy gabber, bitcrusher and Eastern-European chanting.
Blister is an electronic music project born out of an interest in electronic instruments and the freeparty environment. It mixes hiphop samples, funky rhythms, ethnic instruments and black humour, wrecked into techno by an obsolete drum machine.
Jack Slow, born and raised in Trentino, is an artist of various masks: tattoo artist, illustrator, sculptor and sound explorer. His art is often inspired by the kind of folklore you could find in a post apocalyptic world.
His sound research is very focused on feedback, his approach is improvisation. His “poor man’s modular synth” is a mass of cables coming out and back inside the mixer, creating feedback, intertwining and bifurcating to meet tape loops, game boys and home-made instruments. Everything is transformed into acid drones, glitchy abstractions and field-recording textures, nagging rhythms, minimal melodies and other rotten distorted sounds. The set up is not, by its nature, designed for composition, but for a dialogue between machines and humans.
