Third Eye Foundation
If you're familiar with Flying Saucer Attack, you've heard Matt Elliot's capacity to generate oceans of cascading noise that attracts far more than it repels. His project Third Eye Foundation explores that sound further by taking discordant drones to piercing extremes that envelop the listener like a deep cradle, as if angels were screaming from the pains of hell. Lulling coos are easily confused with alarm siren stridor. His beat arrangements are complex and relentless, often forgoing the customary building up and tearing down of rhythmic structures. Instead, he drops mad, scattering beats into his thick textural fog without warning. His beats are concertedly harsh as they frantically snap like the bones of a human body trapped under a descending elevator. He often ventures into Jungle territory, but rhythms this scattered and urgent race for other states of total sonic immersion where a listener's pleasure and pain are not so far apart.
