Jason Hoffman is a multi-talented artist, musician, and Chicagoan. He used to live in a dark cave, where he watched a movie where the screen turns from white to grey over the course of an hour over and over. In that fearsome era, he was also spending a lot of time looking at Suicide Girls. Now he is in this awesome band Chord, whose newest album Progression recently came out on Important Records. It is about how these six chords ring and drone like great bells. It is epic. One of his other projects is anatole, which is very dark and quiet. The new anatole record is called Our Bodies Fold in Empty Detriment.
Jason taught me the word "brutal." In light of this, for the first edition of Random Demands, I randomly demanded that Jason respond to a certain segment from a Japanese game show where these dudes get hit in the nuts. Intrepid readers will also notice that this falls in with the running leitmotif of my blog, balls.
And now, without further ado, "they are supposed to be played in various combinations of simultaneous, making it my first opera!" Minimalism + testicles=amazing.
