DOZE DOSING - "shared_DOCS_w/_u"


MDIM015
DOZE DOSING - "shared_DOCS_w/_u" 
available on limited edition cassette/digital/all streaming services
A plea for a return to normal biorhythms, MDIM015 explores the post online come down and saturated mental state of cloud based socializing.  Using improvised vocals as incantations, minimal beat structures, and DX7 musings DOZE DOSING explores the sleepwalking like state of being plugged in beyond one's comfort level.
To cope with the countless hours spent delivering instruction, providing mental health support, and analyzing data while teaching online during the COVID pandemic, Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens committed to recording songs everyday immediately after logging out. Each song was captured in one or two takes and the vocals were improvised.
"I needed to sing a little, I felt abnormally symmetrical, I felt I needed to repeat phrases over and over to get through it."

03.11.20

"03.11.20" seeks to explore the COVID-19 crisis through America's obsession with sports. The escalation of "social distancing" and "self quarantine" exploded exponentially across the US after the flash point of NBA postponements on the night of 3.11.20. "We chose that moment to explore the stages through which the media and individuals have processed the trauma: first confusion, then anger, fear, paranoia, isolation, and desperation. We have created an alternate timeline where the game is not postponed but rather continues in sync with our own pandemic struggles; a game that can only be heard and seen from a safe distance." 
Directed by Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens and Jason Iselin

Dune Juice LP (multidim records MDIM006)


ANDRE CACTUS - DUNE JUICE 
(stream/download/limited edition asphalt covered cassette with chalk drawn cover)
https://ampl.ink/dbQD1
https://andrecactus.bandcamp.com/album/dune-juice-2

PRESS:
Sound and Silence (France)
"With his new opus, Dune Juice , he continues to develop a dense and complex music, which borrows genres without really asking questions, the atmosphere through the trip, r'n'b breakaway version, experimental but in accessible mode...while pushing further away his taste for deviations and risk taking, advancing proudly on the rubble of a future fed d history and past, hypnotic melodies and untamed beauty. Superb."

Cause = Time blog
"When you thought that Stevens couldn’t delve any further than he did into the beautiful isolation of the sparse desert landscapes like he did when he was Morriconez, Andre Cactus comes in through an ambient pathway to take things a few steps further. “Dune Juice” is the name of the new album released this past week via Multidim Records (purchase here) with a collection of airy tracks that brilliantly uses samples in ways that don’t oversaturate the final product."

State 51 Records
"I just stumbled on Sundrops on Bandcamp and immediately put it in my best of 2019 folder."

Bored in Pittsburg Blog
"This track’s use of pitched-down, distorted vocal samples, detuned synth blips, and overdriven bass notes really vibes with my burnt out, disoriented husk of a self today. These musical elements drift around each other, anchored by a crawling, stuttering hip-hop style beat... ;it’s an interesting slice of woozy, off-kilter electronic music"

Tape TIME
"-great new tape of hazy desert beats, abstract/ambient passages and grainy grooves.  Check it out!"

X [American Burden] X

Been pondering today's inauguration for a long time (as we all have).

I went looking for solace in the Hymns, Anthems, and Songs of America.

After sampling them, deconstructing them, listening to refrains repetitively, stretching them to the brink, and collaging them back together I found some silent principles in the tiniest pieces of America's balladry.

I wrote this piece as an American portrait and to remind myself to use my little voice in this democracy. 

Thought I'd share this piece to provide space to reflect within and to provide a different option for your ears on this inauguration day.
