Hungover & High is the first EP for Broadcasting Transmitter released collaboratively through Octopus Pi Records and Time /\ Space (Edwin Sheather's of the bands new label - which will release the EP on limited tape).
The track 'Mandelbrot's Hangover' was featured on the Octopus Pi compilation Whatispsych. Here we offer the full Broadcasting Transmitter session, recorded as two one-take pieces at Megaphon Studios on the 2nd of September 2012.
This music is entirely improvised, without overdubs and while all three members were incredibly hungover & high.
In the band's own words: "Broadcasting Transmitter are about as unprepared and unorganised as a band can be. That's because there is something truly beautiful and honest about imperfection. There's an underlying sense of humour in the absurdity of searching for meaning and purpose within something that is utterly chaotic.
Each piece takes us by surprise and I think that's why we find it so exhilarating, because we are literally getting lost in music. Our feelings are moulded by the environment around us and a piece is determined by our collective state of mind at the time.
We're enamoured with the universe and the ways you can connect to it by transmitting and feeding off different frequencies and vibrations. That's why we're inspired to make this sort of music - we're attempting to tune into that universal consciousness, albeit in the most primal way possible."
Tune in for yourself.
Limited Edition tapes will be available to purchase through Time /\ Space Records and at the launch December 6th at Join The Dots, Marrickville.
