You Can Do It

(Bug Incision - BIM74) CDR $6.00

Ali Robertson and Malcy Duff’s characteristically bizarre series of sound explorations, recorded during a week-long residency in Helsinki in May 2010 at the “mobile curatorial platform” known as Ptarmigan. You Can Do It opens with what sounds like a person working out, then traverses through all manner of molested detritus, small, gestural sounds, and absurd, wonderful, glossolalia. The pacing, which follows a logic not immediately apparent, sets this apart from other junk-music and free improv.
