Thanks to a prying Google search and the unexpected arrival of Gut Nose's eaT biskiT ep in the mail last week, I know that Biskit is a Python based open source software package. Moreover, I'm treated to a reminder of those Chicken Biskit snacks that for some reason only I detest. After shuddering at that for a moment, I discover that eaT biskiT is the debut beat-tape from the New York based Gut Nose, the product of I'd imagine at least a decade's worth of his associative engine churning discretely at all hours. Self described as a "groovy dystopian sci-fi soundtrack", I can't help but wonder what grooves in a dystopia. The standard in this one is surprisingly structured and casually immersive, repeated patterns keeping Gut Nose's distortion and noise moving with a more familiar sounding swing; all and all, the exquisite artifice of eaT biskiT makes for unusually comfortable spectatorship, in spite of its innovative deployment of sounds and samples.
Update: An intrepid commentor seems to have clarified the "biskit" reference, putting a name (and web presence) to the little plated "OTO Biscuit" synth on eaT biskiT's cover art. The more you know!
Purchase a copy of the extremely limited eaT biskiT cassette edition from Gut Nose's bandcamp.
I daresay this is the reddest post that's ever graced the blog.
