Transverse Temporal Gyrus

edited November 2012 in Animal Tracks
What are your thoughts on it? Did you enjoy it, get creeped out by it, hate it, etc. I really enjoy it, how it feels so live. It's so weird I have to love it. Especially the end of part 2, where that dark, loud bashing is going on then Deakin's vocals come it and contrast it

  • Most of it feels like my least favorite parts of Oddsac. Wish I could skip to the songier parts. That eastern sounding Avey song (vaguely remember a line that goes like, "Killer of rage") is soothing to no end.
  • It really is, and I see what you mean about the least favorite parts of oddsac bit. Some of the "noise" is hard to get used to

    It was really interesting but i've only listened to it once. Its hard for it to have replay value cause the tracks are so long.
  • Is that an album or something? I read on Wikipedia it was the soundtrack to a 70s porn film, but I think that's wrong...
  • i listened to it a bunch when it first came out and i was pretty obsessed with it. it was great to do hoemwork to. i still love it

    I started listening to it when I bathed in my own feces one time, but it was kind of the wrong vibe. But I tried it again afterward when I cut my right pinky off, and it was perfect for that.

    Definitely sangria. Definitely fruity wine. Definitely Egyptian drumming.
  • dave is scary
  • I absolutely love it. Wish they had more spacey stuff like it
  • dave you just hit 10 on the creepy scale, but that is a good thing. and yeah they are "Sonic Magicians". The creepy characters that each of the members dressed up as during the performance fit the music so perfectly. That is one thing anco does so well, making their music fit specific landscapes perfectly.
  • I really love the part in part 2 around nine minutes in. It sounds like something creepy I would hear outside at night.

They treat their music- and everything they make- as art. Art has an atmosphere and and a mood that is meant to be apparent. I think all musicians do that to some aspect but AC makes a big deal about centering around a main idea for each album. TTG i think is meant to be listened in the sonic atmosphere that they have created live, but it is still great if listened to in one's bedroom. Most of AC's music leans towards a beautiful painting but also is coherent musically. I think TTG is less coherent as music and more accessible if thought of as art.
  • I totally agree with what you said. Some albums, like Merriweather, create a very specific landscape, like a lagoon, which is what Avey describes it as in an interview I watched. I think that TTG creates a less specific landscape, or at least I havent quite figured out what it is yet.

    a fucked up guggenheim tour that slowly goes up the spiral while you pass scary things like men dancing in clcokwork orange rape masks, laughing clowns etc.
  • i liked the many ways of hearing it the recorded version was fine enough but the randomized program was awesome! and hearing all the tiny bits bit by bit and the "songs" alone put together by some guy on AKKA just the fact there was like 4 different ways to hear it was pretty cool i got pretty into it!
  • I forgot about that program! I'll have to use it today
  • TTG sounds to me like either a dessert of death or an abondoned warehouse
  • The second part sounds to me like an open field in the middle of no where
  • now here! is no where! TO HEAR Noah Knows When!
