Synthetic Organism 2 (SO2): The Siren Mole

Patricia Piccinini - Exallocephalla Parthenopa vs Vombatus Ursinus [Siren Mole vs The Wombat] (2001)

Alec K. Redfearn makes music that laboriously flushes out molehills; that sprays folk dirt until it becomes wet and darkened with thought. This excavation is a slow, irregular, and tortuous job. But Alec demonstrates that the intensity can also dance to the deeply echoing cadence of instruments used to collapse the soil. Perhaps these hymns inspired Patricia Piccinini's synthetic "Siren Mole" to leave obscurity for the suburban luxuries of the Melborne zoo, vehicular transportation, and even skateboarding.
