Artist: CPTN Uzncwz
Title: Praise Kary Mullis
Format: 3" MiniCD
Label: Inner Demons Records
This is my first encounter with Columbia, Missouri based CPTN Uzncwz, but they describe themselves thus: “Organic locally sourced HNW about nature and spirits or some shit.” I love a band that doesn’t taken themselves too seriously, so that bodes well. They also explain that “This album is dedicated to Dr. Kary Mullis, creator of the Polymerase Chain Reaction, God of intuitive practice of the sciences.” I had to look up Polymerase Chain Reaction, and evidently it is a way to generate millions of copies of the same segment of DNA. In some ways, then, this actually seems like a decent homage to this process. This is 21 minutes of low end, rumbling bass noise. It almost feels like the same segment of noise was looped over and over for the entire piece. It was pleasant to listen to, and even with headphones I found my mind wandering away, and then coming back again. Still, as I have said with some other works, I prefer to have some variety in my noise, so this didn’t really work for me as it stands. I could see this working well as part of an art installation though. This album weighs in at around 21 minutes and is limited to 42 copies.
