Listen To Ex-Partner's 'Rainbow Party / Media Poison' OST

Chris Cudby / Monday 9th August, 2021 1:04PM

Do you recall those Read Along books and records from decades past, where there would be a handy beep or chime noise encouraging you to turn the page? Ex-Partner's new original soundtrack (OST) for his forthcoming publication Rainbow Party / Media Poison isn't really like that at all, instead eschewing conventional narrative tropes for a mind-frying four track deep dive into ambient opulence. A debut collection of poetry written by the artist during the WTF expanse of time that was 2020, Rainbow Party / Media Poison is described as "an intimate, dream-like traipse through power politics, childhood, nostalgia, mental illness and survival" — launching with soundtrack compact disc this Friday 13th August at Tāmaki Makaurau's Audio Foundation. Decidedly "not a poetry reading," the multi-media event will also include performances by Ron Gallipoli, Kimmy and No Accident, plus visuals courtesy of Job Club. Traversing realms from "monastic vaporwave to pagan-horror," the OST's textural electronic soundscapes feel like a tonic to 2020's trend towards interminable iso-anthems, listen here...

'Rainbow Party / Media Poison' book and soundtrack CD will be available at this Friday's Audio Foundation launch event — more info available HERE.
