bt#41: stAllio! – fixed that for you

stAllio! - fixed that for youbt#41: stAllio! – fixed that for you

release date: april 26, 2016

this is the one you’ve been waiting for — stAllio!’s third post-mashup release kicks it up another notch to expert level. pop music is shredded apart and intricately woven back into new hooks, mashed to pieces but still recognizable and accessible. no fx, no chipmunking, no corny one-liners where the whole joke is in the title — this is lesson three in how to “mash smarter, not harder.”

comes with a 10-page booklet complete with sample list! it’s a free download (also on bandcamp).

download mp3s:

  1. mash smarter not harder (smartass mix)
  2. bust a groove
  3. people like damn
  4. superman vs robo-haters
  5. booms of doom pt 1: howl at the boom
  6. booms of doom pt 2: boom worker
  7. howl at the dead boom bam footworker (remix by Dr. AWIA, V.M.D.)

*//// BACONHANGER \\\\*

[Chicago - Weirdcraft Youth Group -
dark electronic/breakcore/digital hardcore]

“Baconhanger is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of Midwestern U.S. According to local folklore, he was inbred and farm-raised by a cult of Satanic Hoosiers who’s sole purpose was to create a pagan deity to convert unbaptized children to Satanism. After murdering his makers he left the confines of the cornfields & holds occult revivals all over the Midwest, eating the souls of the youth.”

*//// STALLIO! \\\\*

[Indianapolis - glitch/audio collage/post mashup]

“stAllio! is an Indianapolis-based artist who works in new media and music—both under his own name and with the band he founded, Animals Within Animals. He is best known for sample-based music and for his experiments with databending and glitch art. His music can’t be pinned down to one style. One minute he’s taking the mashup aesthetic to the next level by slicing up pop music and splicing it back in elaborate ways. The next minute he’s dabbling in ambient loops and noise. Then he’s experimenting with databending—the creative misuse of digital information in ways other than was intended—incorporating sonified data files into his work, and even making music composed exclusively of such sounds.”

*//// DR. BUTCHER MD \\\\*

[Indianapolis,IN - breakcore]

“In his evil lair, deep underground, dr. butcher m.d. conducts vile breakcore experiments and unleashes noise monstrosities and doomsday breaks upon an unsuspecting public. He began his relentless reign of terror in ’97 by assembling a ragtag bunch of misfits and and deviants he called “bad taste”. under his iron-fisted rule, bad taste has terrorized the world in waves, occasionally lying low, but only to plan the next attack. the doctor is in…. inside your house!”

bt#40: stAllio! – sword to your mother

stAllio! - sword to your motherbt#40: stAllio! – sword to your mother

release date: october 2, 2015

you had probably forgotten that line, buried in the liner notes for 2008′s wack cylinders, that read “part one of a trilogy i haven’t named yet.” and who could blame you? there have been three other stAllio! releases since then! but stAllio! never forgot, and the trilogy that still hasn’t been named continues with part two — sword to your mother.

part two continues many of the loop-based appropriation techniques of part one, and throws in a few new tricks. it’s a little glitchier, a little less chatty. it’s a meditation on death and dying technology. it’s a free download.

download mp3s:

  1. this could be close
  2. a thing of the past
  3. a kind of death
  4. winding up
  5. an added advantage
  6. like a broken mp3
  7. everything’s silent
  8. this failed future
  9. tainted canvas
  10. proud and stupid
  11. computer graveyard

bt#38: stAllio! – on the DLL

cover artbt#38: stAllio! – on the DLL
release date: december 19, 2012

stAllio!’s triumphant return to the world of sonified data! once again, stAllio! plunges deep into his hard drive and listens to the data — image files, executables, and link libraries alike are converted to sound for his review. the choicest bits of data are then meticulously assembled into music: glitchy melodies, skittery rhythms, and thunderous beats emerge from the digital noise. you could call it IDM (interpreted data music), dirty 8-bit, or glitch-hop. stAllio! used to call it databent music, but these days prefers the simpler term data sound.

this is stAllio!’s first full-length release in the data sound style (his label debut, dissonance is bliss!, and 2004′s true data 12″, were both EPs) and his first release as a pay-as-thou-wilt bandcamp download. so stream it online, download it for free if you’re feeling cheap, or even chip in a few bucks for your music the way people used to — but whatever you do, don’t sleep on this!

includes 10 brand-new data sound bangers from stAllio! and a bonus remix by schaedel!

stream/download on bandcamp!

bt#37: animals within animals – produce, abuse, resample

bt#37: animals within animals – produce, abuse, resample

release date: february 29, 2012

every four years comes a day that shouldn’t be—a horrible mistake of a day, like someone’s played a prank on the calendar. we tack an extra day onto the end of february because we have nowhere else to put it; the other months are too crammed full of days already, and poor february has so little… but it’s not enough; like a bad toupee, it just draws more attention to the problem.

animals within animals chose this day, february 29, to release their new album, produce, abuse, resample. did they choose this date to say that this release, like leap day, is an artifact of our damaged system—a kludge, an attempt to fill some vaguely perceived cultural gap using whatever they had on hand? did they choose the date as a wry acknowledgment that it takes them too long to put out material? did they just do it because it sounded cool? because they wanted it out in february and that was the last possible day?

none of these questions will be answered when you hear the album. but on that hourlong odyssey of noisy collage, ritualistic beats, ambience, and profanity, you just may learn what happens when you find a stranger in the alps.

the download is free—as in “free samples”.

download mp3s:

  1. portmanteau
  2. last splash (hello darkness)
  3. approach the world through your ears
  4. four-letter edit
  5. ritual sample abuse
  6. destroy 2000 chip shop windows
  7. rub your head
  8. i don’t need to deal with this shitty music
  9. covered with scorpions
  10. that beeping stuff
  11. rectum abortion music
  12. beautiful stranger
  13. computer scooter
  14. something is wrong
  15. noise is wrong
  16. who?
  17. supposedly there’s a heaven but no one can prove it
  18. abused sample ritual (meta etc mix)
  19. four-letter edit #2
  20. witches in nature’s colors

Active Listening / The Act of Listening premieres tonight!

not so long ago, listening to music was a passive activity. you turned on the radio or put a record on the turntable, and you listened while the music played. but now attitudes are changing and listening is becoming increasingly interactive, as more and more people remix the world around them.

each week on Active Listening / The Act of Listening, host stAllio! will feature work by remixers, sound collagists, and others who choose to play their records in ways they weren’t meant to be played—as well as perform active listening experiments in the studio, shining new light on old records by playing them in nonstandard ways.

tune in to Active Listening / The Act of Listening on numbers.fm every sunday night at 9:38 eastern / 8:38 central!
