Some things come together in both sound and vision like the proverbial chocolate and peanut butter, and such is certainly the case with Augustus Muller’s of Boy Hasher’s Machine Learning Experiments soundtrack, a project which sees the synth maestro turning his hand at scoring a pair of artistically shot erotic films—or “pornos” if you will—utilizing his sexy synth invocations in such as way that only seems natural.
The collection of sounds in Machine Learning Experiments is culled from Muller’s scores of the two films Orgone Theory and Hydra, which were a collaboration with Four Chambers, a collective self-described as “magical realism porn”, that pushes the bounds of art and pornographic material.
This work was supposed to be released this past April, but unfortunately due to the Global Pandemic, it had to be delayed for release until today.
Below is a message from Jae and Gus on the matter:
Hi everyone – Today is the official street date for Gus’ ‘Machine Learning Experiments’!
You are probably thinking “I thought the record came out on April 10th??”
Well, that’s partially correct. The record was released digitally on April 10th and can be ordered through our website and Bandcamp. Because most of the indie shops were closed in April due to the C-19 virus, we decided it best to push back the physical release date to May 22nd.
You can still order the record through us (we have the last few copies available on clear green vinyl – limited to 300), black vinyl and CD, BUT these are rough times for record stores, so if you feel comfortable and are able to leave your house, we suggest you supportin’ your local indie retailer and purchase a copy of the white vinyl (exclusive for indie stores, limited to 600). The black vinyl and CD format should be available through them as well.
If you don’t live near a record store or it’s not safe for you to leave your home, there are plenty of online mail-order shops around the world who carry the record.
If you ordered the record through us and you live in the EU you probably have already received your order. In the last couple of weeks we were able to start shipping again to China, Japan, Brazil, Mexico and Canada, but, unfortunately, the restriction in place for Australia and USA. We really hope the restriction will be lifted soon.
If you’ve pre-order the record through us or through an online store and you haven’t received your physical copy yet, you can forward your order confirmation to [email protected] and we’d be happy to send you a download code of the album.
Thanks so much for your support in these dark times – it means a lot to us!
Boy Harsher recently released their video for “Electric”, a track taken from ‘Country Girl Uncut’, out now on Nude Club / Ascetic House.
