Metavari Absurda: Music Reimagined in the Short Films of David Lynch Colored Vinyl LP
Metavari, the moniker of American composer and electronic musician Nathaniel David Utesch introduces his new album: Absurda - Music Reimagined in the Short Films of David Lynch. The album contains eleven original tracks, each of which have been scored in unison to a collection of short works from filmmaker David Lynch. Spanning Lynch's career, the films represent a breadth from student work (e.g., "Six Figures Getting Sick" and "The Alphabet") to contemporary pieces like the title track, "Absurda," and his now infamous animations: "Industrial Soundscape" and "Dream #7."
Absurda plays through as thoughtfully as the rest of Metavari's synth-heavy catalog, but there's an evolution here that explores a deeper level of experimentation. It's a chaotic collage of sound, rhythm, and melody; weaving through both harmonious passages and abrasive acousmatic sound. An almost "plunderphonic" execution of MIDI sequencing and percussion utilizing PCM synths and Foley samples. It's clear that Metavari has found himself on a new path as he carves his niche in electronic music. Metavari describes the process as a "scribbling on top" of Lynch's films.
I've followed David Lynch's career my entire adult life; cherished pages from a series of love letters that feel like they were written just for me. This project is the semblance of what I've scribbled, in my own language, on top of those letters as I write back to the man who has inspired me more than he'll ever know."
The colored vinyl LP pressing comes packaged in a deluxe reverse-board printed jacket with a custom die-cut center hole. Also included is a digital download card and a special 4-panel insert.
