bt#48: stAllio! – blame it on the algorithm

release date: april 8, 2022

Years ago, while making music with the program Impulse Tracker, stallio noticed an unusual feature: it would open any file on his hard drive as if it were an audio file. Fascinated, he spent hours listening to Photoshop brushes, Windows system files, and all other sorts of data, selecting the most interesting sounds to use in his music.

This path eventually led to three releases, including a self-released 12″ (True Data); experiments in visual arts; influential glitch art tutorials; academic citations; and more.

Now, 10 years after his last data sound recording (On the DLL), he returns to his 8-bit roots. Heavy as a brick and crunchy enough to break a tooth, “blame it on the algorithm” coaxes intricate rhythms and buzzing basslines out of raw 8-bit data. No filters or effects are used.

Nobody can explain exactly what happened to The Chipmunks. Or they won’t publicly. Maybe they don’t want to admit it to themselves. Was it all flawed from the start? Doomed to fail before it even began?

Best not to think about it. At least we have the recordings.

When you think back, it should’ve been obvious that something was wrong with The Chipmunks. Something about the way they moved, the way they sang. Something you could never describe. Now that they’ve started to break down, there are many questions, but few answers. You scan the recordings for clues.

release date: april 26, 2016

this is the one you’ve been waiting for — stAllio!’s third post-mashup release kicks it up another notch to expert level. pop music is shredded apart and intricately woven back into new hooks, mashed to pieces but still recognizable and accessible. no fx, no chipmunking, no corny one-liners where the whole joke is in the title — this is lesson three in how to “mash smarter, not harder.”

comes with a 10-page booklet complete with sample list! it’s a free download (also on bandcamp).

  1. mash smarter not harder (smartass mix)
