    Your very own "The Art of Noise" CD in the snazzy wallet packaging.

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This is the 3 song collection "Flight of the Bleeper Bird" for flute and Gameboy from my album "The Art of Noise". Only 100 45RPM records have been made and only 50 will be sold via Bandcamp. The rest will be available at my shows and at Matthew Joseph Payne shows.

    These super-awesome record jackets are old 8" floppy disks. The 7" record with paper sleeve and plastic sleeve are inside the 8" floppy. (I am not ashamed to say I stole this idea from Urizen!)

    Each 7" record will ship with the full-length CD "The Art of Noise."

    THE FINE PRINT: I'm selling only 1 record per person. I'm shipping vinyl within the USA only....unless you *really* want one - just let me know - but I will have to charge more for shipping.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Art of Noise via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

“Mercurial is a journey that highlights the soloist’s ability to blend into a wide variety of sonic landscapes. The piece begins with low droning flute sounds and once the soloist is comfortable in that setting, the scene changes abruptly. Noisy beats take over the piece and push the soloist to adapt to the new surroundings. Again, when the soloist is comfortable, an abrupt change tosses the performer into a much noisier and less friendly arena. The low flute drones gradually reappear but not for long. Yet another noisy groove sneaks in and takes control of the piece. The work ends with a return to the beginning but this time the performer is alone and revels in the solitude.

Special thanks to the University of Iowa Music Instrument Sample Bank for the flute samples, Mike McFerron for the step sequencer, and Freesound users ashassin, skiptracer, nic- Stage, and jobro for the all the wonderful noise. Please support the Freesound Project (freesound.org) to keep the sonic love alive.” - Jay C. Batzner
