♫♪  Long Distance Poison - “Remote Bluebird”

Creeping moss and tarter buildup haven’t got shit on Long Distance Poison. Like tree branches or veins pumping life, movement is seemingly stationary but always constant for this two-piece synth outfit. With their latest endeavor (the audio/visual album Rheomodes, which is streaming in full at the bottom of the page), they’ve only further cemented this fact. Luckily, the good peeps at Oxtail Recordings (who are releasing the cassette version of Rheomodes) sent us over the video for the album’s closing track, “Remote Bluebird,” to provide more proof. Hurrah!

To better understand what the heck this whole audio/visual album is all about, take a gander below:

Rheomodes is an audio-visual project by the Brooklyn experimental electronic duo Long Distance Poison that grew from ongoing research into Cold War era initiatives in mind control and fringe intellectual thought.

Using analog electronic audio and video synthesis, Rheomodes is where sound controls image and image controls sound, clearing an opening for formless movements between each relative phenomena and possible moments of cognitive reprogramming by means of processual emphasis.

Over the course of the summer of 2016, using intuition, pseudo-randomness and self-generating systems, three audio-visual events were documented via three video imports. The events can be described as films or as songs but are really less distinct objects than different contexts of process.

BONUS ZONE ALERT: there is also a show TONIGHT at Printed Matter in Brooklyn, NYC in support of this release. Further details can be found here.

CHOCOLATE GRINDER is our audio/visual section, with an emphasis on the lesser heard and lesser known. We aim to dig deep, but we’ll post any song or video we find interesting, big or small.
