An "Aged Green Junction" box of indeterminate echoes

Jimmy Kipple collects glitches at his jmmykppl.tumblr.com, many of them chance instances of error, such as water-damaged pages scanned into Google Books, others of them “contrived.” That word, despite its often negative associations, is a matter of willful self-definition for Kipple, who embraces it and employs it as others might the term “composed.” While much of his Tumblr is largely visual, he is a frequent presence on SoundCloud.com, where his music — fractured to listen to and in the manner he presents it, framed with splintered phrases and erratic punctuation — stands out for its conceptual fortitude. A recent track, “Aged Green Junction,” appears to take its name from an electrical routing system left behind by time, and it revels in deep echoes of indeterminate origin and destination.
