LP / Dark Entries Records / 2014
Dark Entries is proud to introduce the debut album by REDREDRED, a
contemporary artist from San Francisco. Michael Wood, formerly of duo
Primary Colors, began this project in 2012, taking inspiration from
Front 242, Einsturzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle, Nietzsche and Sartre. Wood utilizes a
simple setup of vintage analog synthesizers and drum machines, and
records them on reel-to-reel.
“Pattern Completion” was originally planned as a 4 song cassette EP
that was only released digitally. The A side features remixed and
remastered versions of the tracks from the EP. The B side consists of
four unreleased tracks, two of which are instrumental. The material on
“Pattern Completion” is strongly influenced by Michael’s former
live/work studio space in the Bayview District of San Francisco, an area
surrounded by recycling facilities and water treatment plants. The
songs reflect this industrial atmosphere, stacking treated rhythm box
patterns, quivering synthesizers, and mechanical vocals.
All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy
Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a jacket featuring photography
by Melissa Joy Bernier and contains a double sided insert 11×11 with
lyrics. “Pattern Completion” develops the strain of futuristic, mutant
industrial pioneered by San Francisco groups like Tuxedomoon and
Factrix, with REDREDRED adding his own brand of damaged angular rhythms.
