Guit-Tronic MP3

An untitled crackup of mashed guitar snippets and broken beats is the latest entry in the “MP3 Rotor” at the kracfive.com collective. Credited to wwcarpen, the cut (MP3) is abstract more for the utter lack of supporting information than for anything else. Filling that void of biographical data is a mesh of strings and bang that speaks well enough for itself. What makes the scattered strums and off-meter beats work is how, over time, they become nearly indistinguishable from each other. It’s all just a pleasingly chaotic assemblage in motion.
