AP/MSM is the forthcoming album by Detroit-based producer Infant.
Recording and sampling are used to recognize and construct patterns from the mass of sonic material and associations present not only in the web’s archives, feeds, and stacks but in memory and personal history.
Archive Poem was originally intended to be sourced entirely from digital fragments and ephemera found on the Internet Archive. During the development, material from a wide range of sources including social media, voice memos, field recordings, and midi composition has been added. At its core, the piece is an attempt to consciously digest the sonic material of the personal digital life.
Midwestern sacred music is built from recordings of Catholic masses and contemporary Catholic hymns found primarily through YouTube. Its structure loosely mimics the form of Catholic liturgy. The piece is meant to act as both a critique of contemporary religious spaces and an attempt to transform the sonic material of these spaces into something genuinely personal and meditative.
