David Morneau Transmutes Chiptunes with “Broken Memory”

6 08 2013

Welcome to “Broken Memory” by David Morneau, Immigrant Breast Nest’s composer-in-residence. Although born from the limited sonic palette of chip-tunes, Morneau is able to coax delightfully unexpected results from the familiar 8-bit chirps and blips in each of these six pieces. Immediately dissolving our preconceptions, “The Black Hallway” leads us to other strange locales, brutal and broken terroir, terminating finally with “Rue D’Auseil” which riddles blips with funk and thumps. Each track title references H.P. Lovecraft’s story The Music of Erich Zann in which the titular hero plays his intense, strange music to keep the demons at bay. It’s apropos, “Broken Memory” is radically creative music for staving off the abyss.
