Torn Humorist
Everyone Works So Hard

Laying his Trudgers project to rest, Brent Mitzner has returned under the guise of Torn Humorist to infiltrate new concepts in home-taping. "Everyone Works So Hard" is a testament to the 8-track tape machine as a vehicle for instrumentation. Synthetic sheets of melody are fabricated from dense layering of guitar and viola as the tapes are sped up, slowed down, pitch shifted, EQed and layered again and again into abstractions that bear little resemblance to their original form. A swirl of textures twist into and out of each other in the pool of self-reflection, leaving more questions unanswered than before.
