Notes


Entry for standard black vinyl version.

This piece came about during a research project into Muzak in 2015. The Muzak Corporation (recently rebranded as Mood Media) desings background music that can be used by businesses, factories, shopping centres or government offices to ensure that employees, clients and members of the puplic are upbeat and co-operative. Research by the Muzak Corporation found that Muzak must sound familiar, predictable, and non-disruptive to be effective.
Drawing from this research, I composed a series of pieces that I call Disruptive Muzak. These pieces share a similar sound palette to Muzak, but their structure is less familiar, less predictable and more disruptive. To test these compositions I called up government offices that use Muzak in their telephone queues and played them down the phone instead of my voice. The music I played and the officials' responses were recorded and assembled into the piece that you hear on Side A. Side B contains the music only, that can be used to DIY.

Album


2 tracks 41:18. Sam Kidel's debut for The Death of Rave is little short of a modern ambient masterpiece. Following a celebrated debut for Entracte in 2015, the Young Echo and Killing Sound member's sophomore solo album is a playful, emotive inversion and subversion of muzak that background noise variously known as hold music, canned music, or lift music employing government call centre workers as unknowing agents in a dreamily detached yet subtly, achingly poignant 21-minute.

Its a deliberately worded album title if ever there was one, with an adjective defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as causing or tending to cause disruption or innovative and groundbreaking prefacing the pleasant, inoffensive connotations of the Muzak Corporations eponymous product.

Sam Kidel AKA El Kid will issue Disruptive Muzak via The Death Of Rave on April 8th. Kidel is part of the loose Bristol collective known as Young Echo. His trio Killing Sound-which includes Young Echo affiliates Vessel and Jabu-has released a pair of records with Blackest Ever Black, and his solo releases as El Kid have come via labels like No Corner and Astro:Dynamics. The music he makes under his given name tends to take on a more conceptual bent. Last year's 12-inch for Entr'acte, for instance, was inspired by a Henri Michaux drawing, and he's also worked on original scores. Disruptive Muzak may be rooted in academia, but its far from pretentious. No other release summed up 2016 for us as much as Sam Kidels Disruptive Muzak. When it came out in April we described it as a modern ambient masterpiece - that was before Brexit and Trump. It now feels like the most prescient record of our times.
