home slice of life about contact


...a fascinating and, at times, brilliant descent into our perception of time and its impact on the world around us.

Cassette Culture: March 2022

Slice of Life, our debut album, is equal parts curation, composition, improvisation, and memoir - a sound collage of sound collages. It all started when we exchanged a few brief texts and a real weird Snapchat video in 2019. This interaction established a simple practice that we followed over the course of the next two years:

  1. Person A sends Person B audio of anything
  2. Person B could do anything they want with that audio
  3. Person B sends the result to Person A
  4. Person A could do anything they want with that audio
  5. Person A sends the result to Person B
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 until it feels finished

Slice of Life is the result of this collaboration. The work is a conversation between the two of us teeming with daydreams, free associations, and non-sequiturs. We assembled, synthesized, scavenged, and denatured gobs of sonic scraps and sculpted the album out of their detritus. Our asynchronous method allowed for destruction, alteration, and addition in the time domain, radically transforming their linear creative process. The result belies the process used to create itself: it is a singular experience shaped by the specter of its past lives.
