Insect Songs is a series of short form sonic explorations by Black Unicorn. Drifting toward dissonance, IS seems a natural follow-up to BU’s earlier Alien Jewelry (Further Records, 2014) alongside the textural interstices heard on Traced Landscapes (Field Hymns, 2012) but gone are the blankets of ambience instead supplanted by noise and contrast and the certainty of void. IS comprises twelve songs, eleven ~3 minute tracks and a twelfth that finds all of the previous recordings layered in cacophony. Recorded 2016 at Mills College in Oakland, California using cassette tape and modular synthesizer, IS is a different sort of BU album while remaining a facet of the transdimensional jewel hinted at in earlier works. Released as a limited edition Infinity Series CDr.
