A single 28-minute track of subtle nocturnal ambience from the French sound artist Sebastien Chou. Close attention is required to perceive its ever-evolving nature.
"AFTER FEW YEARS PASSING IN ART SCHOOL, SOUND COME TO ME LIKE A GRAPHIC EVIDENCE.LIKE
A GRADUATED SHADING BETWEEN TWO POINTS,AN INDOLENT FORM,OR A PHOTOGRAPHIC FUZZY ZOOM WHERE WE CAN LOSE OUR NOTIONS OF FRAME, THE MACRO MADE SESSION IS A THINNER."
As far as we can tell, Odd Job no longer makes music and hasn't responded to any contact from music writers and labels, including Deserted Village.
"....weird lo-presence sonic sonorities...." -Thurston Moore, Arthur Magazine
Odd Job is not Irish, but hails from France, and is one Sebastien Chou. No list of instruments here, but I think that there are guitars and synthesizers at hand, and a multitrack recorder, but probably no computer. Merely guessing of course. The one track that makes up Macro-made session is a densely piece of sound knitting. Sounds swirl in and out of the mix, sometimes forward and sometimes in reverse. Rhythmic ticks pop up and die out. Quite a nice thing actually. Lo-fi psychedelica of an unusual kind. FDW, Vital Weekly
