Oh Astro Hello World

Oh Astro's Jane Dowe wrote the software with which she produced this six-track exercise in incongruity, and the result is truly among some of the strangest music you may ever hear. The forms and customs of popular music are systematically turned inside-out, dissected, and scattered into the mix like drops of paint off a brush. There is structure here, but it is jarring and somewhat nerve-wracking, as particular melodies and rhythmic patterns are hinted at but never fully explored. Interesting as an intellectual exercise but listenable only to the most open-minded among us.
