Music Is Meat
Repressing. 2010 release from the American musician, artist a poet. This is the soundtrack to the book, Music is Meat. It's a novel about an obscure industrial band being filmed for a documentary. But the singer is dead and the band re-enacted by others, and then becomes more popular than the original. Maybe it's about the fact that noise music is now more popular than it was when Lunde started in the early '80s. The book tells the story in a rather abstract way, cut along with drawings from the storyboard and thoughts about what noise is. In some ways it's probably a not very accurate autobiography, but no doubt it carries a lot of personal memories from Lunde from the old days. To listen to the 'soundtrack' at the same time is not easy, as it contains a lot of spoken word pieces and bits of audio. The whole package, book and CD, however is unmistakably 'noisy': A bombardment of text and sound, both in print and on the CD, creating a beautiful and disturbed image.
