SoftWorld - Alien Prayer (“Transcode” Mix) (by JSG58)

SoftWorld: 2020/2020 Vision

SoftWorld is a perfect electro-storm combining the distinctive voice of Jeremy Gluck - not only in his lyrics, but in his distinguishing vocal & sound-collage work - and the maverick electronic music of Don Tyler, which integrates elements of classic Berlin School electronics and early synthesizer music akin to John Foxx, Cabaret Voltaire and the Future.

Having been introduced by a mutual online collaborator, the duo fast found common creative ground and began creating forward-looking electronic work. Catalyzed by their fledgling efforts, the duo have in a matter of months created multiple album’s worth of material, graced variously by Bronwyn Bonney of Crime and the CIty Solution, Swiss vocal artist Lisa, Glasgow-based cellist Christine Hanson, and UK-Norwegian vocalist Asa Seljistad.

In late 2012 SoftWorld signed with LBA Records, with whom they will shortly release three albums - Machine Karaoke, SoftWorks, and Metaphora - showcasing different facets of the duo, from pop to electro-punk, soundscapes to ambient, as instant art both sanctified and profane.

It comes from that same place where Lovecraft’s black stars are.
It’s not experimental if there’s intent involved.

Nohol - SoftWorld

Jeremy Gluck:

SoftWorld works in a number of ways. Sometimes I initiate a track; sometimes my pard’ Don Tyler does. Sometimes we have others contribute their voice; usually we use mine. This track, Nohol, came out of a random loop swing of mine whereby, bored one recent weekend morning, I switched on and stuck my recorder outside the front door and shut it outside. When I got bored waiting I retrieved it and, as I watched television and mostly oblivious to and not even listening to what I was doing, I applied filters, at first randomly, gradually becoming more involved in the process, finally producing a half dozen or so dissonant loops. I then dropped them simultaneously in the multi-track and once again randomly began mixing them. I liked the absence of words and a voice - I’d always used my words and usually my own or sometimes another’s voice; this “instrumental” was a SoftWorld first - and the grainy, aimless but somehow emotional tonalities of this accidental creation. I invited Don to provide a base loop, and he sent something typically inspired to underpin the noise.
In the meantime I stumbled across the information on this project, which I had overlooked for a few weeks. In the spirit of it all I attributed the sounds - which like the images are grey but rich in detail - to the project. They are parallel, perhaps, but no less connected for that. 
In honour of Andy Warhol I christened it “Nohol” - a lateral nod to the late 70s New York “No Wave” movement and simultaneous nod to that emptiest and strangest of attributions, love - and sent it to Don for some expert mastering. It’s my favourite SoftWorld piece thus far and I’m happy to share it with the Attributed community. The experience very much reminded me of Burroughs’ “Do easy” experiments where he would spend time but little energy mastering the easiest way to, say, throw a ball of paper across his room into his wastepaper basket, to minimise effort.
