My God is dead

This comes from my noise/rock opera which is still unfinished. Our protagonist realizes that he can survive and function without belief

Made solely mostly using time stretching and a drum machine.
The musical bits of noise are my voice stretched to a ridiculous amount and then squished back to 1 hour.

Solely mostly?

I meant mostly. I think.

Do you guys hear that "kill your family" voice? Or is that just me?

Hey, it's listenable, and interesting, which is much more than I can say for 95% of noise.
Gotta run. Kill the family.

That sounds sorta like Big Black.

I think this broke something in my head and I still like it.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree, most noise is unlistenable. I try to make stuff that's obnoxious but almost catchy when I do noise. I want people to come to a reklus show and have a good time, a scary time, but a good time. I want the sounds and music to balance what I'm doing while making it, not just be the focus.

The old joke of; They're still calling this experimental music? I think they'd have a result by now really applies to the circuit benders here in providence. Not only is their music boring, they put on AWFUL shows. Just awful nonperformance art.

And of course the hipsters eat it up.

I think a lot of people that know me from my (and The Great Big Mulp's) rock band, "the next" tend to be surprised at my reklus stuff.

Wow, punctuation and I really aren't friends lately.

Sorry for the unreadability. I was playing Lego Star Wars 2 all day and my brain was fried.

Have either of you posted any "the next" stuff? I'd love to hear some!

Thanks for the feedback.

No, sir, thank you for the feedback.

Hey, this is a good song to play to Jehovah's Witnesses when they come by.

The Great Big Mulp posted 2 of our songs a while back.

I did. Uhm ... let's see ... God of Filth and Frame Room.
