Biography

“Tortoise-esque post-rock” - Jim Allen LimeWire.com

“The music sounds like reading Finnegan’s Wake: beautifully nonsensical and dreamy, but if read right you’ll find the story within the gibberish.” - www.KnocksFromTheUnderground.com

“It makes the trip-hoppy world of samples and experimental electronica palatable to anyone ready to engage their imagination.” - Rivera’s Picks

Fatty Acid can’t be bothered with formal chord progressions or proper harmonies. With value placed on the texture of sound rather than the harmonic movement of each piece, the tracks off of the self-titled debut were written based on the “sound as such.” Jon Sheldrick, the man behind the operation, is the Bob Ross to this impeccably painted sonic landscape placing the listener atop one of its happy little trees, burgeoning from specks on a canvas to a fully developed fern, swaying in the imagined winds of a textured, colorful environment. And environment is entirely what the music is about.

With a deep focus on creating music that is sonically distinct and in the spirit of the sound as such, Sheldrick utilizes the recording process itself as a composition tool toying with digital and analog synthesizers, computer editing software, as well as live instruments to create what some might call electro-acoustic music.
