Andrew Thomas "So you wanna be a (death) star" - 2000
The second in a continuing series of 'more experimental' works on the CDR side of the Involve label. It is strictly limited to 100 copies. Andrew Thomas is a world renown interior space designer and ex-Australasian Frisbee Disc Champion.
The work is made up of 11 sonic translations based on the artwork 'So you want to be a (death) star?'. The star is dub deconstructed. Pulling apart the form and its space to reveal a dark mesmerising radiance, the star unfolds over the course of the work. The music possesses the density and complexity of the bezoar-like structure of the art. The dimensions of the work and sound loops within at first appear to be precisely mapped, but reveal themselves to be uneven, disjointed, with hidden asperities, unseen roughness. Despite its disturbing and tense feel, the music contains a warmth that grows over time.
