The inimitable combination of Daniel Hayhurst and Reuben Sutherland were once described as “Post-techno rhythms sounding like Sun Ra meets Ekoplekz in a conical flask of liquid mescaline, all spun thru a centrifuge at Daphne Oram’s home lab”, and few descriptions seem quite as fitting. The pair have been famed for their highly collectable series of animated picture discs and their unforgettable multi-format live show, featuring live tape looping, discombobulated fx-chains and acid-flashback visuals provided by their both custom, and the aforementioned picture disc releases. ‘Membrane Pop’ is released mid-May on Software, a label curated by Daniel Lopatin, AKA Oneohtrix Point Never.
“If a majority of the music you hear today resembles the hard-set stone carvings of history, then Sculpture’s offerings are imagined, transitory statues with no fixed place in time. Hearing Membrane Pop in a different context, time or place may well bring about a different experience. Or perhaps a similar result.”
