THE H_MIX PSY TEST

"Music is the research of an internal order to deal with the external chaos"

We supplied the same package of sounds (those that compose our tune 'Hidden' : freesound.org/people/melack/packs/9317 ) to some mentally injured musicians and they had to send us back a logically structurated tune.

This album contains the result of this test, a collection of tracks revealing the mental state of the studied subjects showing their subjective concept of 'logical' and 'structured'.

Beyond that, the experiment also reflects the essential feelings leading their souls and their capability to be reinserted (or not) into a socially regulated world.

We, at the Head over Heels lab, have separated the dangerous patients from the sane ones, but it's up to you, as a visitor, to draw the final conclusions and decide which ones will you take home.

[ · ] on track title = subjects who choose not to add sound of their own on their mix, strictly limitating it to the samples provided.

The mixers :

+ MALEK BOOM : soundcloud.com/malek-boom

French beats from Greece, his version of Hidden (where he added his trademark sound and turned it into something new) was the reason why we started this (re) mix project.

+ LOBIE : www.facebook.com/lobie.music

From head-down, hoods-up Oakland, CA, Lobie transformed our beloved Hidden into an ambient abstract dark thing, a shiny-fluorescent worm that evolves through a tunnel of deep bass.

+ THE SECRET ADMIRER : thesecretadmirer.bandcamp.com

Our favourite dj, appears here in its most emotional and delicate personality. We are just amazed with what he did with our sounds, a tune to be felt on the skin.

+ AMPMX : soundcloud.com/ampmx

We hardly know anything about him or her... All we can say is that Ampmx apparently lives in Nottingham and enjoys showing us how nostalgic and cute sound can be under a shy wall of breath and hiss.

+ DR. HELL : soundcloud.com/iluvijah

From Mallorca, drummer and former member of electrodubpunkrock band Neotokyo, he is one of the reasons why HoH was created, when he and his band mates invited us to play to their music festival. Direct electronics and a stabbing sense of humor.

+ CLASE SENCILLA : www.clasesencilla.com

Another of our physical friends here, he's been an essential figure for the growing electronic Barcelona scene from his Bar Rouge and organizing musical events at Apollo Club. Musically, he moves between ambient, noise and feeling research.

+ SADIST = ELH / PENGLOOSE

Sound magician and evil producer, he twisted the Hidden samples into an epic powerful track without adding any new sounds. On the other side, he included more of himself under the Pengloose alias and delivered a plastic-acidish mindblowing tune. Play it loud!

+ C'EST AIMÉE : HIDDEN UNTIL THE END

"A non-musical electronic speculation" (cmcarapace@gmail.com)

+ CERI JC : blog.ohmforce.com/2010/08/12/ceri-charlton-interview/

Smart sound criminal from UK, Ceri perverted our sounds until they got stockholm's syndrome. We don't really know what else to add, just try not to lose your soul inside his hypnotic tune.

+ É<3É

We don't know yet if 'é<3é' is his name or the track title, but the guy made whether A) a precious dadaist reflection about sound and frequencies, or B) a crazy schizofrenic arythmic destruction of Hidden. Total fucked-up mind or pure wisdom. We can't decide. Probably both.

+ MOSM

Isolated up the mountains, Mosm spends his time amongst joints, love and weird electronics. It's hard to tell what's inside his mind, apparently a dark field of abstract irony. To be delighted on headphones for full madness.

+ * OBI : www.last.fm/label/robbie_eleckt_recordings

When we asked our polish friend Obi for an alternative mix of Hidden we didn't expect he would send us six crazy remixes packed in a zip.
It included the following explanation text :

" hi there

I promised 3 rmxes but it turned out the day was full of sunshine and I was full of energy, so you get 6 versions (all free ;) - all those guys/remixers are...me (no, I'm not schisophrenic....I think...well, I'll ask monoid ;)

Ok, who's who, if you (guys) need it:

ROBBIE ELECKT - me, my main project after the "elektrobi"^ project retired, electronic, dark dance, electro-ish or acid-y stuff

SVEN SKUTERSEN - me, but faster, more drum loops used like amen break - crazier stuff with fast beat, mostly

HAN SHAN AND FRIENDS - me, my virtual experimental dream band, doing all kinds of crazy stuff robbie eleckt and sven skutersen are not capable of or do not feel like doing. from full time post-rock (think Tortoise) band to odd sample collages. that's them.

KING OBBY - also me, but that's...the new guy, I think - maybe if I decide to do more dubs i.e. more like reggae dubs - that's the persona who'll be making them. I've checked the name - no other "king obby" exists, hurray, so I might turn it into full-time King Tubby tribute project, or stuff

cheers

0bi

[ ^ ] elektrobi most frequently sequenced blocks in FL Studio and rendered the output from inside it, but one day there came robbie eleckt and decided to mix tracks live in FL while recording output in Adobe Audition. that's how things been going for years now, and how I made these remixes, too."

+ ATONAL SONOGRAPHIk : archive.org/details/AtonalSonographik

+ HoH = HEAD OVER HEELS

If you are here, you already know us somehow...
In this album we included two tracks of our own:

- 'Hidden - HoH mix' : Our album version of Hidden.
Check our album here : headoverheels.bandcamp.com/album/in-order-to-chaos-head-over-heels

- 'Hidday' : Seminal naked version of Hidden, and probably first HoH recording ever (when we were still a duo). Live keyboards and melody fx processing. Distortion, it's raining.
