bret schneider “model of a garden scene with watering can” c59 cassette
- door #1

|may 2011 release ; nice to hear an offering of such detailed computer music coming out of the tape-scene right now (church of latter-day analogue fetishists ; ask yourself ... “what’s next?”) ...|
ps. it’s already come up & invariably will do so again, so i’ll clarify ... despite the similarities, this is a different guy than “frank bretschneider”, who is german. bret schneider is american, and largely seems un-google-able, unlike his german namesake ...

model of a garden scene with watering can
aa010cs :: cassette
duration: 59 minutes
bret schneider has created a world of chaos from the helm of his digital workstation. model of a garden scene with watering can is on the surface a simple exploration into abstract sound by way of (and perhaps limited by) his digital means, though schneider brings into this sound collage many sources of sound. the root of this dense structure is still quite simple: play.
about his creative process, schneider says, “i tried to make a situation where the music is like the inverse space of the known world ... in a sense it is me making all the wrong decisions, going against my intuition, being the negative space of intuition.” if you’re not interested in process or philosophy, perhaps you’ll at least be turned on by the ear-tickling sonic concoction that is the manifestation of schneider’s approach to creative sound. if there is anything left of your brain by the time you’re through listening, you’ll certainly receive a gracious ‘thank you’ from your ears.
