Peace Snakes (feat. Ralph Carney and Microstructures)

from The Puff Of Things To Can't by Puffy Shapes



This track could be thought to represent the chaos of blind nativism against a highly connected world. An exploration of the ancient tribal wiring of our brains that often seems at odds with global modernity.

For a little while in 2012, Jacob Trombetta, Corey Farrow and I got together once a week to make pop music under the name Microstructures. Jacob came up with the original chords on a Huragel acoustic grand piano and added the key guitar lines in West Hill, Akron, 2012. I played bass. Corey and I added some production layers. Ralph Carney added several layers of horns and winds in 2014. Also collected for this track are vinyl samples, acoustic salt shaker and youtube cheerleaders.

What you are hearing is the result of feeding the above material into the Puffy Shapes Beat Machine. We call her Delia. She is deep learnt af. I am her steward and librarian. She performs once a year in the desert at sunset on the Summer Solstice.

Created and rendered in 29 Palms, California in the Summer of 2016.
