Experimental electronic artist Detraction has a new video out from his recent album “As Above/So Below.” It begins with a slow-motion shot of a snow shower on a busy Milwaukee street, eventually switching to a rain shot filmed in reverse. In the second half, close-ups of the puddles flowing down the curbs reflect a fascination by perpetual motion of matter. Then we are taken into Fresh Thyme Market, where people are lined up with their groceries, ending with a shot of a big unicorn balloon. It seems to be a commentary about the movement of society against the elements while other objects remain perfectly still. Detraction is working on another album due out later this year.
Thus-far, it’s been eight months of congruent experiments, highs and lows of musical entanglement, consulting with confidants and headstrong movements. Overwhelmed? Not really. Just stuck in a “perfectionary caution” phase for the best… for every sound/instance has a place and contains weight. Being the conductor of such experimentation, one must learn to walk away from such construction, and be vigilant on the final process. So much more to do… and looking forward to it.

“When you sit back and realize what year it really is, and how many birthdays you’ve had, and the Earth is just a rock in delicate balance, within the void of outer-space. You might just become aware that Life is an exercise in knowing, loving and dishing-out compassion to all fellow Earthlings, and those not of this Earth. Then Life becomes a journey to absolute Warmth and Giving.”

My emotions now seem to flow asymmetric opposed to congruent. It’s like I’m constantly editing live music on the fly, yet the notes are thoughts and feelings. I’d give anything to record it, and play it back sometime.
