The DeafNoise story continues. The man behind it, Luna Menta, challenges our concepts of what a deaf person can achieve through the creative medium of sound. His Anarcho-Punk ethics and approach spew forth heavy bass, caustic slabs of harsh rhythm and discomforting sonic undulations. For this release he called me in for vocal duties. A shared fascination with the power of words and dark subject matter spawned some interesting lyrical ideas, often spontaneous and then beaten into shape over a time until the lid finally fit box. Studio sessions became the catalyst for ideas that were later ripped apart and re-shaped. Rehearsal tapes were dredged through to find key moments when everything was excitingly WRONG. The aim has been to keep the ears guessing and, at the correct volume, the internal organs resonating. My job has been too do my best to interpret what i believe are the frequencies and vibrations Luna Menta lives inside. I can never know how accurate the results. There can never be a definitive answer & this is why DeafNoise is so important to me. Nothing is known, nothing is definite & nothing is comparable.
Fluxus principles sit side by side with song structures, nothing connecting them other than a knowing glance or a lurch of the body as some knew direction is gambled upon, the dice are loaded and the dealer is blind, by not trying to win victory is inevitable.
Many thanks for listening
