CORY STRAND "THE BLING RING: A REINTERPRETATION" 6CDr SET (WITH BONUS CD AND LIMITED ART PRINTS) (AOW 125)
In working with the soundtrack I have tried to mirror the film's pacing, with the first three discs being the more aggressive and flashy of the set. Massive psychedelic walls of screaming noise combine with washed out club bangers and crushing percussion loops, creating a numbing repetitive sort of "dance noise" that crumbles and glitters simultaneously. The last three discs retreat into psychic oblivion, with frigid washes of empty graying ambient mirrored by caustic HNW of the emptiest sort, all struggling to eradicate a sort of sickly sweet loveliness stinking of illusory nostalgiah and connection. I feel i have done a successful job in interpreting Coppola's thematics and this set stands as a personal favorite amongst my works, reveling in a mass of new sounds and techniques while existing well within the defined confines of my projects.
Also included is a bonus disc created by me using dialogue from the film, a chilly excursion into nothingness that stands as a fitting closer to a film ultimately about the waste and hollowness growing rancid at the bottom of the cultural pool.
Packaged in a twin DVD case with the artworks sent along in a clear plastic bag. Released in a very limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $45 ppd. in the United States, $57 rest of world.
