Brett Naucke: Multiple Hallucinations tape

Brett Naucke’s Multiple Hallucinations tape consists of numerous short passages stitched/melded together in a deliberate sequence. Constructed with modular synths, the pieces range from starry, melodic shimmers to abrasive drilling to unquantized rhythms, and there’s no clear beginning or end to them, and no telling when the next section is about to start. Everything’s overlapped and interacts with each other. The sections develop their own personalities and seem to usher in their companions, or sometimes spar and brawl with other parts. The last few minutes, beginning with the part featuring amorphous voices, are the most intense and brain-triggering. The overlapping text on the J-card seems to mention planets, strength, beauty, wisdom, numbers, zodiac signs, maybe specific pieces of gear. The music contains all of these things, usually at the same time.
