GORILLA's sonic make-up was built on mirroring our experience as a "detached audience." We are constantly consuming information, no matter how extreme - having the ability to shift between watching a bombing in Syria to a Japanese puppy video in the time it takes to click a button: from horrific to absurdly pleasant. The moods and musical sequences within GORILLA 's four Movements sweep in and out - each wallowing in its own chaos and invertebrate noise - quickly and often, to present that relationship of "two digitally-conceived emotional extremes" - while also giving nod to a generation's fickleness with patience. How do we choose to exist alongside as well as within this vast technological architecture (today's Internet experience)?
In composing GORILLA, Eaves found himself drawing from streaming online sources for inspiration and actual sound material. Melodies sprung from free Youtube-ripped EDM/trance sample packs - not physical and/or software synths. Drums molded up from LiveLeak broadcasts and the "dark side of Youtube" (i.e. cellphone-recorded tragedy and EDM festivals). With this specific technological origin, the intention was for everything to be put back into the digital stream, re-contextualized through the filter of GORILLA - the Internet as the true life force to this project's conception.
