Biography

Bio is Below / But First the Manifesto


Recently, we have been asked by numerous people what we feel we are achieving with altered recording techniques and the use of everyday items (car keys, horns, silk-screens, radios, televisions, fans) in our recordings and live shows.
Various movements in art directly inspire our use of these techniques. In our view, Dadaism especially demonstrated the realization that everyday objects can be seen and appreciated as works of art. For instance, Duchamp’s Readymades were simply common objects brought into a gallery environment. Pop art is similar in practice. Instead of common objects transformed by their artistic setting, common practices (such as advertising and graphic design) are presented as techniques worthy of art’s recognition.
We aspire to a parallel practice with sound, and we seek to create art , which combines principals of the aforementioned movements as well as others. Instead of everyday objects or practices, we choose to bring forth the sounds that everyday objects and practices make, place them into a new environment, and give the listener a chance to hear and appreciate them in a new way. Sound reflects art reflects life reflects art reflects sound.

Inspired by the darker reaches of nickel theater sideshows, Body/End/Basement, the newest full-length album from Single Frame, serves as a case study in mental instability, vermin phobia, and social dysfunction.
