...Music Maps 2

After the debut 10 releases, we'll put the cassette to rest in order to dive deep into the primordial ooze of new media. The musical map program has taken on some new dimension. Songs expressing a landscape will serve as points on a route, they manifest as expressionist loops, and an external variable (possibly your browser navigation) causes you to progress through the territory.

Different albums are different countries in our super continent. Each nation's traditions is diffused into our fantasy world on the internet- replacing the real world with metaphorical "like" parts. As we continue the adventure of songwriting in the Sabertooth Tiger studios, we can leave a cartographic record of the realms we visit.

The philosophy behind our song writing method is expressed on the debut tapes. Red is Roseville tells us that the album is really a place, and music will always be something that should be accepted as scenery. An artist is only a phase, an interchangeable avatar who ebbs on the flow of a popular current. And music? A machine:  Chomsky-esque linguistic programming of preliterate man, vestigial circuits of expression leftover from an animal-pastoral lifestyle.

Some examples of mytheme setting music that we've written in the last week include a windmill and a highway.
