Jim Haynes: Electrical Injuries LP
Jim Haynes on the album: "Electrical Injuries was designed as an intense record. Something akin to a sustained self-immolation. The themes of corrosion and dislocation central to the research. Similarly, the source material and the means of production also maintains a lineage that dates back to my earlier compositions and designs. I still use shortwave radio, electric disruptions and varispeed motors along with a smattering of synthesized sound that have recently blossomed from a long-term residency at the Recombinant Media Labs. I find myself deliberately pushing these tools to engage with more volatile frequencies and to pursue more aggressive strategies for upheaval. The ruptures are more acute. The harmonic dissonance is more pronounced. In this context, the concepts mentioned above become more existentially stark, eschewing the poetics of residues in favor of an accelerated disintegration. Torn, ripped, blown apart, dissolved in acid, left to rot, atomized, electrocuted."
