I just purchased Dylan Houser's Album Meanderings from Dylan's Bandcamp page.
Please click below to enjoy Meanderings.
I decided to do the review of Dylan's Album in an art/writing style called Asemic Manuscripts. Each song for me holds a unique feel and a continuity as a whole to the other songs. Over the last few days I did each piece, in various places, finishing up doing "Queen Spider" and "Sunset Beach" at a laundromat in Saint Pete.
I enjoy doing art in normal public spaces vs. the confines of my bedroom. Each piece moved me in a different way. My favourite song off the album is "Queen Spider". My second fave is "Sunset Beach". Meanderings is a really tight album. I was moved and surprised. To me when I think of Noise in the genre that some of us play in, Dylan comes to mind first as hard and heavy. Then Hal Harmon next.
Meanderings was in parts very elegant and beautiful. It added to the picture I have of Dylan doing what Dylan does. There may be another write up on this album...but..at the present moment I am still pondering on the sounds Dylan created. Don't take my words on it. I drew how I felt. Please go and slip on head phones..(my fave way to enjoy music) meditate on the Asemic Manuscripts and enjoy.
Part of my process is sketching out my gear set up for each show i play..
My sketch for my portion of collaboration with Vallam, June 12, 2018 ..
22 inch gong with various toys to caress the brass, Digitech 300 vocalizer pedal, Delay, and EQ..
Glockenspiel, two Woodblocks with contrasting tones
Cedar Flute played through second Digitech 300 vocalizer, delay, multi fx pedal.
I love percussion. U can find instruments everywhere. I also enjoy inviting the audience in and playing along side of them and vice versa. I played a show up at Quolab in Savannah, Ga. Each cup/shaker contains different spices, seeds, nuts and foods. During one of my songs each member of the audience had their own and added sonic color to the rest of the set..
