Tuesday 4th September, 2018 2:08PM

Wellington electronic noise artist Mutation aka J. S. Dimery (Numbskull, Johnny and the Feltchers, Poverty & Spit) has dropped a self-titled debut collection of morose sound collages. Recorded by the artist in a Berhampore basement studio, the ominous three-track collection is accompanied by a deep, dark video for ‘Thick Hair Protrudes & Bursts Through Wet Skin’. The tune is a sonic voyage through thundering, uneasy sub bass, samples describing “painful diseases and parasites” and reverb-heavy, primitive yelling. The visuals for noisy, industrial track is depicting feeding flies and writhing maggots. The artist shared some insight on the inspirations behind Mutation, read his words and feel the sonic transfiguration below...

"Synthesising an obsession with body horror and a lifetime of aggressive skin conditions with a deeper intention to endure and understand the modern world and all of its inhumane and ecological sufferings. Mutate and survive as your surroundings turn sour. Adapt to a new world without those dearest. Harness innermost thought into artistic process, and perhaps the light will burn again.” 

Mutation is playing in Auckland on Friday 15th September at The Audio Foundation with Flesh of the Womb, Methadone and Nereid Moon, and on Saturday 16th September at beloved local "psych-thug" crew Sere's final show at The Wine Cellar with Green Grove.

'Mutation' is available on limited edition 7" vinyl acetate via the artist's Bandcamp page.
