Description

Features two new mixes of Oswald’s 1993 composition ‘Plexure’, which was originally commissioned by John Zorn for release on his AVANT label.

The two new mixes are “prePlex” and “PlexureConcentrate”.

Plexure was constructed entirely from brief fragments cloned from thousands of mostly pop recordings from 1982-1992, the first decade of the compact disc era. Most of the album is built on a structure that begins with the slowest songs from that time (mostly ballads and blues), and proceeds gradually to the fastest (bluegrass and speed metal). This is the same structure that a British mash-up artist called Osymyso, a decade later, used for a piece entitled introinspection that features 100 tunes in a mostly linear sequence, in contrast to Plexure’s multifold polyphony.
