Otherworldly Mystics has been steadily putting out tapes for a little under two years now and while we have different tastes I tend to like the artists that Chris Robert’s finds and releases! So I was pleasantly surprised when he decided to release some solo soundtrack work of his that accompanied Jared D. Weiss’s animation “Transmission”. Weiss’s animation is a colorful darker work about a creature and his dog that begin to receive signal from an unknown presence via am/fm boombox. It’s pretty long and is constantly building which Robert’s music assists in illustrating throughout.
The dark drones and pitter-patters of mores code leak along and the colorful pair travel through terrains to find where the signal is being broadcast. Overall, this little tape is a success and the packaging is nice. The dub is real great and the sounds stand-alone but reinforce the animation as well. Both are worth checking out.
