BLK w/ BEAR advocates a communications aesthetic wherein audio/visuals are distilled to key base components through image pixelation and sound/time manipulation. We celebrate the physical manifestation of misfired communications, broken language and broadcast interference. We champion delay and decay. We champion audio bleed, field recordings and the deconstructed surface noise of altered vinyl recordings. We herald cyclical repetitions and misappropriated realignments. Through aggressive enlargement and recontextualization of the mundane and every-day, BLK w/ BEAR hopes to usher listeners and viewers into a deeper introspective relationship with previously familiar – now unstable – environs.
