Fragments of popular and original music were manipulated and collaged together to invoke atmospheres and associations cached in cultural memory, with the aim of shifting familiar sounds into new realms of perception. Transmissions from the past, detritus of the collective unconscious, a soundtrack to a party in an alien territory. “Beethoven for Relaxation” is a collaboration with visual artist Tom Smith.
