The GULCH/BUBO split contains recordings of long-form ensemble improvisations by two groups of forward-thinking Arizona musicians.

GULCH is a unit manipulating guitar feedback, choreographing drum machines, digital delays, and sequencers, and re-processing and re-synthesizing through laptop patches. Part I begins with pleasant beds of distorted strings ceding ground to industrial kinetics, ominous shimmering and feedback shards reaching an apex before a cooled drone denouement. Part II is a paranoia drift, cascading organs and dire strings behind synthesized text from Deleuze and Guattari’s A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia.

Taking their name from a genus of owl and the root of bubonic, BUBO presents a more bright and visceral intermingling of acoustic and electroacoustic sounds. Bleached guitar vistas and longing strings roll out a desert languor winnowed by occasional out percussion abrasion.
