Death Sex

Death Sex

July 2012

Ants, amp, disco lights, hair clippers, bontempi, synth, circuit bent child’s violin, drum machine, somebody talking about Whitney Houston’s death.

2:35

This track contains ideas about death and failure. I had collected some objects from the street for a sound sculpture and a group of ants were inside a small perfume bottle I had taken to the studio. I planned on going back to the perfume bottle to let them out but got sidetracked with some instruments, when I got back to them they had died. I hadn’t realised there was a valve in the top of the bottle and they could not get back out. I made a track in their memory and brought them back to life for one last two minutes and thirty five seconds as they danced on top of the amplifier to the vibrations of their track under the disco lights.
