Neptune w/Coupler, Hobbledeions
As long as humans have made trash, some of us have had the vision to reimagine it as art. Neptune’s Jason Sandford began turning found objects into musical instruments in 1994. Since then, he’s enlisted a revolving lineup of co-conspirators to compose and perform on a variety of unique hand-built instruments, ranging from familiar drums and guitars to a far-out organ that uses small microphones and speakers to manipulate feedback. Their tunes mix a healthy dose of “how did they do that?” with minimalist and no-wave experimentalism, but the show is still more performance art than physics class. Sometimes an artist comes up with such a succinct and appropriate label for his work that it doesn’t require rephrasing, and Ryan Norris has done just that in referring to Coupler as “deliberate ambient music.” Sunless, the latest album from the prolific keyboardist (contributor to Lambchop, Hands Off Cuba, KORT and many more), will be released on Saturday.
