janisary music lp
janisary music is a project which brings d methlie together with guitar maven sean maffucci to create a musical environment all their own. the project began with a task; create a score for the experimental film no exit by keith ehlich.
d methlie had been playing around the nyc experimental scene under the moniker rats live on after the implosion of the nyc pysch/experimental golden calves money band (which also spawned wooden wand & the vanishing voice).
sean maffucci had been filling his time blurring the line between rock & noise as part of nyc's am radio [now called icewater scandal].
a chance meeting brought the two together and they began working on the film's score. after a string of performances at various screenings of the film and a few performances at some nyc clubs, the two began working on a record. the resulting recordings are very much a species all their own; created from the spliced dna of many a musical genre & style. the sound is purely democratic; cellos meshing with found percussion, powerbook manipulations fed into a four track and then cut up beyond any recognition, a droning violin set against a thrashing prepared guitar.
the real accomplishment of these recordings extends well beyond their method; while created with a methodically abstract aesthetic, the pieces themselves almost exist in a ghastly image of pop music; slowly building elusive hooks out of sleepy drones to pull in the listener only to tear them down at their height leaving the listener to find only their remnants in the ether of their mind.
