Conceived as an extension of William S. Burroughs‘ and Brion Gysin‘s “Third Mind” technique (wherein text or art is cut up and reconfigured at random to spontaneously access non-linear thought), Spoonbender 1.1.1 is not so much an I Am Spoonbender side project as a concentrated, immersive experiment. The live performance from which 1.1.1 originated consisted of a viewing of one film while spoken text from another was broadcast over it; the soundtrack was provided by the musicians themselves, improvised while watching a third film (hidden from the audience). The result, reproduced on this recording, is a disquieting meditation on telepathy, human emotions, and communion. Best listened to while horizontal with the lights out.”
