"The purpose of technology is not to confuse the brain but to serve the body."
(William S. Burroughs)
lopness is a collaboration between bruno silva (ondness) and pedro lopes (deadact). music you're about to listen has been improvised during the session recorded at wühlischstraße, berlin. lopes plays on turntables in percussive way* while silva contributes with sound processing. recycled reality mixed with needle's hum.
*) "i play turntables like they are full-fledged instruments, which means they can be bowed, percussed, scratched, subversed & hacked. i make my own needles and records using circuit-bending and acrylic cutting."
Note: the cassettes comes with two alternative cover art.

A personal, effective work from two of my favorite artists right now. Textures weave back and forth to suggest struggles, acceptance, denials, fear, and celebration all at once. A wonderful album. wc_helmets
