Published Apr 06, 2010Electronic fans who drool at the mere thought of new studio recordings by electro experimentalists Eskmo and Amon Tobin had best go grab a towel. The duo are working together on a project they've dubbed Eskamon, and they've released the first single, "Fine Objects," as a taster for what will hopefully become a full-length.
The song is, according to a press release, "the result of the pair's unique take on sonic exploration and the manipulation of field recordings. From the onset, the two went out with a recorder, gathering sounds from around the house, yard and studio. Material recorded out of the studio included sounds from a parking garage elevator, a broken harp and the droning tones from a discarded piano. These were combined with more home-centric sounds to form the central theme to the song."
There is no word yet on whether the duo are in the midst of creating an LP or which of the duo's many affiliate labels might release it, but "Fine Objects" comes courtesy of Eskmo's Ancestor Media imprint.
