Since transporting himself from Edmonton to Toronto, über-talented lensman Landon Speers has transported listeners in turn with speaker-straining electronic meditations. Criss-crossing genres and challenging preconceptions, his aliases include Headaches, Bad Dad and John Bidet Ramesses. Speers’ latest CDR — the full title of which is longer than this paragraph — utilizes aleatoric strategies to meld 96 Casio tone bank samples into a semi-improvised monolith, drifting from chin-stroking Mutek minimalism to fast-paced beats fit for the Viking. Recently reissued by Audio Gourmet.
