Unauthorized Modifications by Ostracon
On this debut album from the duo, Ostracon, John Keston uses custom sequencing software to convert video signals into a stream of generative melodic structures. During their performances and recording sessions Keston captures, layers, loops, arranges and processes these phrases building spontaneous compositions.
Graham O'Brien accompanies these angular, electronic structures, with dynamic drumming that flirts with the underworld. O'Brien's percussive statements firmly place the compositions into a non-linear landscape, grounded in a familiar yet impossible to categorize igneous crust.
