We Have a Technical 183: Ghrossts
In this week’s episode of the podcast, the Senior Staff are investigating the breadth and resonance of instrumental music in the broader post-industrial milieu. Whether it’s noise which rejects any semblance of legibility, the specific genres which have developed to conjure moods without words, or bands having dalliances with instrumentals, it’s all being talked about in this chin-stroking episode of We Have A Technical. We’ve also got talk about recent and upcoming festivals in both North America and Europe (that’d be Cold Waves LA and Maschinenfest), plus forthcoming records by Wulfband and V▲LH▲LL.

Instrumental club bangers:
Mlada Fronta- XB-33
Broken Fabiola- Japanese Callgirl (Manufactura Mix)
Rob D- Clubbed To Death (Kurayamino Mix) [probably more of a general “club” song, but we played the crap out of it)
keeping in line with your talk on instrumental music not strictly being defined as music-minus-vocals… i thought i’d drop a line here.
a phenomenal and unique composer is blackhumour. most of his compositions consist of just the human voice. personally, i find that idea of utilizing the human voice as an instrument via non-traditional means (tape loops, samples, effects…) very interesting! instrumental music where the instrument is someone’s voice without being simply a cappella. definitely a fresh take on instrumental music to me which begs the question… can it even be classified as such?
anyway… as always you two are great, and enable me to approach subjects and ideas from different angles.
