Mindscrubber - Automated Broadcasting Devices CD [CH-389]
Mindscrubber is Jeff Herriott and S. Craig Zahler. Their debut release Automated Broadcasting Devices is an obscured narrative of noise and old technology created using field recordings, analog synthesizers, contact microphones, and voices.
Herriott and Zahler have worked together in the metal band Realmbuilder and composed the soundtracks for Zahler's movies Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99, and Dragged Across Concrete. This aptitude with the cinematic enables the duo to evoke the desolation of analog decay through a barren, charred landscape. The worn-out equipment and forgotten mechanisms that once fueled industry are resurrected in a haze of programmed communications, dissonant frequencies, and turbulent malfunctions.
