Artist: BEATTY, ROBERT
Title: Soundtracks For Takeshi Murata
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Glistening Examples is proud to announce “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” (GLEX-1302), the debut LP/CD of Kentucky-based electronic musician Robert Beatty under his given name. Beatty has long been a presence in the experimental underground as a member of Hair Police and more recently performing and recording solo under his Three Legged Race moniker. He is also well known for his visual art, which encompasses installation, drawing, video, and album artwork design for countless artists including Oneohtrix Point Never, Real Estate, Vybz Kartel, and Peaking Lights. “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” collects Beattys compositions for digital video glitch pioneer Takeshi Murata, produced between 2004-2007. Beattys collaborative relationship with Murata has spawned some of his strongest work to date, and Glistening Examples is honored to present this music to the public for the the first time outside of screenings, museums, and galleries. Beatty has performed alongside Muratas work in New York, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Beijing, where he performed several shows, including at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art during the 2008 exhibition, "Stray Alchemists." The formative elements of the recent Three Legged Race full length "Persuasive Barrier" (Spectrum Spools, 2013) are apparent in the rubbery pulsations of "Escape Spirit Videoslime" and the ghostly buzzing harmonics of "Untitled (Silver)". Moving between hypnotic minimalism, dense processed atmospheres, and spacious drones, often in the same track, these pieces are the perfect corollary to Muratas fractured and viscous visuals. While the video and audio are linked in the same fluid time space, the soundtracks are presented now as stand-alone works, powerful compositions drawn from the same underlying chaos apparent in Muratas ever-shifting psychedelic environments. This is exciting electronic music that invites the listener to imagine their own videoscapes with or without having viewed Muratas work. “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” is published in an LP edition as well as CD format, with new artwork from Murata, design by Beatty, and digital mastering by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs USA. The LP includes a download code and an 11"x17" poster. The CD includes a bonus track not found on the LP. " - Glistening Examples.

Artist: BEATTY, ROBERT
Title: Solos
Format: LP
Label: What The..?
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"In spring 2009, Robert Beatty (of solo Three Legged Race and band Hair Police) Beatty travelled as a collaborating and touring member of Burning Star Core -- with whom he has collaborated and toured as a member of for a number of years as well. Written into the setlist performed every night was slot for an improvised solo by Robert, on his special electronics rig, synthesizer, space echo, question boxes, etc. Anything sound he wanted, "make it sing." So imagine similar to three hour stadium show, the moment for the bass solo or perhaps drum solo, except this is a few minutes out of a 30 or 40 minute long set. Except the stage doesnt rise up or no additional smoke blows across. So imagine if almost every Burning Star Core performance was recorded on this tour and these "Robert Beatty" solos were cut out and strung along into an work of their own ? This LP "SOLOS" realizes that concept. It is live, but it is not collage; it is a document, but it is not comprehensive to the originating context. So ten complete solos, in chronological order, on two sides of LP, about run time of 35 minutes. Paste-ons jacket with creepy Robert poster to get to know. 166 copies of this work for fans of detailed-driven minimum electronics." - What the...?.
