"Two individuals with long histories in improvised and experimental music come together through, and despite, modern technology-NEIL CAMPBELL (ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB, VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA) and ROBERT HORTON (THE APPLIANCES, PLATEAU ENSEMBLE, EGGHATCHER).  Although Campbell and Horton have never met in person, they met virtually on the Jeweled Antler mailing list. Both musicians are ridiculously prolific and prone to collaboration. They got to talking disco, probably as an antidote to all the folk and how to record bug chatter. Campbell says, "Robert TOLD me in an email one day well make a disco record together... who was I to argue?" As far as the end result being disco, Horton notes "we failed at that." "It was a good idea," writes Campbell, "but youre also correct to draw attention to the missing of original target, which I really like - nothing better than the happy accident." Horton continues, "collaborations are about being surprised and this one did that often. Just when I thought I knew where it was going it went somewhere else. We still have it in our future plans to make a dance record. 70s retro disco with a serious virus inside that causes it to bleed drones." The resulting album that had to be pieced back together is something that mixes organic, almost crystalline drones with off kilter beat patterns and lopsided techno. Trojandropper is beatific, odd, and an anomaly to even its creators, like all projects that take on a life of their own." - Zum Audio
