the hydra (dimitris papadatos) - on troubleshooting (cassette)


ARTIST // the hydra
LABEL // record label record label (gr)
CAT // rlrlc002cs


The title is inspired by Papadatos' parallel work as a visual artist, art director and graphic designer and is in fact an intended tongue-in-cheek pun, towards all the jobs he finalized but never got paid for. In The Metaphysical Animal, Papadatos presents a thick yet smooth layer of modular synthesizer produced sounds, that reminisces a frozen crust, still and unmoved, while below it a rapid movement takes place. This oxymoron, signifies Papadatos' sound where the use of plunderphonics and field recordings, running simultaneously, lead to a slow but concrete build up.
