press release from the 'Mirror Tapes' label:
The Progressive Lycanthropy package includes one professionally duplicated cassette as well as a handsome information booklet (also pro-duplicated), in which TBWB explains his motivations in an exclusive essay “A Weapon For The Wolf Age” (the booklet also includes a number of other illustrations and surprises along the theme of wolves, nature and modern warfare.) The three epic pieces on the cassette were built up from a “feraliminal lycanthropizer” drone, an experimental binaural frequency supposedly used by the military as an “audio truth serum” or as a combat stimulant- as the name suggests, this technique was meant to hurl individuals into “wolf-like” states where they would careen between poles of focused rage and woozy ecstasy.
Complemented with other sonic ornamentation and digitally-manipulated samples, this material is an eerie interpretation of the ‘lycanthropized’ state as it might exist in a hyper-modern, technology-driven society. Conducted in the spirit of the d.i.y. audio research that characterized the ‘industrial music’ era, this material should have a wide range of effects on individual listeners, from restlessness to wild abandon, and as such does come with a disclaimer not to play while experiencing high stress levels or while engaged in potentially dangerous activities (driving motor vehicles, handling firearms). If you have ever wanted to travel to a world where fur and fangs mesh with integrated circuits to form an invincible hybrid, here is your ticket.
