A Song of Domestic Automation (MP3)

Industrial music by way of the office-supply store

Dávid Mórász‘s “LQ.300” is industrial music by way of the office-supply store, or so it seems. This rhythmically enticing track is made of samples credited to András Hargitai (of Budapest, Hungary). By all appearances, those samples would be of printers and other products found on desks around the planet. On a daily basis you might recognize the musical quality of these tools — the brisk clicks, the able pounding — but in Mórász’s hands that musicality is made literal, the familiar noises turned into a familiar form: the instrumental song.
