Amnesia Scanner’s beats sound so familiar, something you’ve definitely heard before but can’t quite place. Energetic kicks and deep bass drums jolt your body into dancing action, but the rhythms are rarely »normal« enough to really let you go with the flow. Actually, dancing to Amnesia Scanner, at least in public, is nearly impossible – it’s just too out there: »HD explosions and reversed cymbals meet F2M drama and dance music caught mid-stream, with digital shards of glass stabbing you as you’re violently jerked around its sterile world. It’s a hyperextension through the digital muck: aestheticized chronos, sentient beats, all dynamics: noisy, disorienting, & exhilarating, running on its own cold, mechanical inertia: the moment when you realize the security camera is no longer for your security at all.« (Tiny Mix Tapes) The music is alien and new, sounding like water swishing in mouths, glass shattering, metal against metal. These textures also sound like KRRRXXTCHHH or SSPRRRSSH. It’s a useful description, because like Lotic, M.E.S.H., Arca, et al., Amnesia Scanner works with sounds for which there is no name yet.
For 2015, Amnesia Scanner is receiving a grant in the amount of 5,000 euros.
