Menacing Music Mash Up on Myspace.com/MaxAxiom

January 23, 2011

Last year I released a 2 hour playlist which had none of my own vocals, called “MUTE” at MaxAxiom.net because if you haven’t anything nice to say…don’t say anything at all. I still haven’t touched a microphone in ages, but, if you listen to the new tracks I’ve posted on MySpace.com/MaxAxiom, you can see that I don’t have to say anything to say a whole lot.

As I learn the arts and sciences of electronic music production, I’ve gone down a familiar path of Quote sampling. With the precedent established long ago by the Industrial  music genre, electronic samples nevertheless provide a way for some essential ideas to be carried along. Whats new for me is the grooviness of some of the stuff. This music gently pries its way in. Then it splits your head open.

As soon as the words “Order out of Chaos”  (the English name of my first album “Ordo Ab Chao”) came out of Obama’s mouth, I downloaded and sampled it to reveal his true meaning. The Illuminist will provide the clues – seducing some – threatening others – but always leaving their finger print, or calling card. A musician journalist needs only set the stage. Let the subject do the talking, and even though it’s taken out of context of the sentence, it is the context of the event itself: a speech made to the nation after a shooting. Click to hear how Max Axiom heard that a speech.

Separately there are a few tracks on my MySpace which are more playful. A woman and a man interviewed in 1954 about LSD is remixed into a catchy yet simple tune I Can See All The Molecules, while pop culture is harvested in my oldest sample-based track The Line Must Be Drawn Here ft. Capt. Picard and Lt. Worf. You’l also recognize Obi Wan Kenobi in More Machine Now, which is a goofy track but although begins to poke some fun at the transhuman topic, while my newest track Who the – Who the – the Fuck Are you? is basically pure manic nonsense.

Off-topic tracks are part of the learning process, but they are unlike the crucially important Spit Upon Your Fire, which features audio captured by Alex Jones’ infiltration of Bohemian Grove “Cremation of Care” mock human sacrifice, or the previously mentioned Obama remix Scripture Tells Us.

Max Axiom remixes the meme. This is the journey that information takes in post modern media. It goes from guarded secret to dance mix.
