Tyrant Flycatcher from the “Enigma” album is perhaps an unusual track for Static in as much as it incorporates the use of higher tempo rhythmic elements. The experiments leading to this track were highly influenced by some of the earlier material from the Skinny Puppy side project known as Download. Tyrant Flycatcher is a mind bending excursion into frenetic rhythms that evolve and collapse yet somehow resist the urge to resolve.

This week’s featured track is from the Enigma album. “Angel of the Devil” is probably my personal favorite on that album. It is also a favorite to perform live. The dramatic percussion section at the climax of the piece is a blast to play. The inspiration for this one came from the classic theme of the vampire and his/her struggle to find a place between humanity and oblivion. Please enjoy.
Just added the Industrial Music Electronics Piston Honda Mk3 to the Modular synth arsenal. Within the first few moments, I can already tell this is a beast that will find it’s way into many new recordings.
This track from the Apocalyptic Metaphors album was spawned from the classic technique of creating a collage of many spoken audio clips for a disorienting effect. We chose clips relevant to the subject matter and built an ambience and drama of noise around that.
