Eukaryotik's Zoological Pardons is a remastered version of the 2006 debut solo album by Curt Brown (RCN co-founder later known for solo projects Black Unicorn, Baingan Bharta, Eucarya & collaborative projects Cane Swords, Dennis Franz Kafka, Map Collection, Mousecop, Peanut Twins, etc.). Originally released by PatternBased as PB6, this new version was digitally remastered by Brown in Akron, Ohio in 2021 for limited edition CDr and digital release.
Zoological Pardons is a collection of aural experiments utilizing noise, ambience, synthesized sounds, musique concrète, electroacoustics, proto-techno, and other sonic topographies. Most of the audio was produced through digital manipulation with sources including field recordings, found sounds, groovebox synthesizer, circuit bent keyboard, voice, prepared piano, sampler, and software. Conceptually presented as a journey beyond destruction toward new formation and reconciliation — this album represents a young sound artist exploring, experimenting, and expressing through a multifarious approach that results in a cohesive trip through time & space.
"If Zoological Pardons begins in a subtle silo somewhere in the desert and ends in the same place, what explains the complete disintegration of time/space that takes place between the polars?
Attributing the complete lack of regard for physical law and mathematical constant to the dusty spaceman suit found buried underneath a hollow cactus, the wearer's stares are spiral staircases, lacing their way menacingly to a backyard barbeque. Queue populace ninja, a populate enigma through kung-fu and pulled punch sandwashes to big city factory outlets. The fallen asleep legs are rejuvenated.
A field full of abandoned auto parts, each representing a piece of human anatomy, to black-tie affairs where the wearer fares well if they light their cigar before the fire starts. Onto minute molecules of antimatter theoretics and bouncing jungle vines, capsized soldier runs to silos. In a few thrown words, the canvas is continued by the birth of a new frequency."
