Seekersinternational - The Guncontrolla
In their newest offering, B.C.’s conscious sound-scape-system unit present a dub docu-drama, a "righteous pacifist dub statement,” through careful ritual undertaking, intentional documentation and methodical transformation. A battery-operated 1987 Tascam 4-track recorder and a Shure SM57 cardioid microphone captured field recordings of a workshop on a classic firearm disassembly and reassembly demonstration given by Cold War vet at a military surplus shop. The Seekers then deconstructed, piece-by-piece, each of the models demonstrated, using effects to echo and eddy them out an eerie haze. Musically it’s a concrète mapping of dub’s most mystical and allegorical recesses, a gripping and unsettling experience unlike any other. The B sides uses the same materials to structure more of a fixed tune with repeated, foreboding melody guiding the groove.
