Notes

Initial copies on clear vinyl.

This piece came about during a research project into Muzak in 2015. The Muzak Corporation (recently rebranded as Mood Media) desings background music that can be used by businesses, factories, shopping centres or government offices to ensure that employees, clients and members of the puplic are upbeat and co-operative. Research by the Muzak Corporation found that Muzak must sound familiar, predictable, and non-disruptive to be effective.
Drawing from this research, I composed a series of pieces that I call Disruptive Muzak. These pieces share a similar sound palette to Muzak, but their structure is less familiar, less predictable and more disruptive. To test these compositions I called up government offices that use Muzak in their telephone queues and played them down the phone instead of my voice. The music I played and the officials' responses were recorded and assembled into the piece that you hear on Side A. Side B contains the music only, that can be used to DIY.
