Jacob Ciocci is an artist and current Eyebeam Fellow notably regarded as one third of the American art collective Paper Rad. He is also a prolific producer of music, installations, websites, and animations. David Wightman is completing his Ph.D. in music composition at UCSD, where he teaches courses on popular and contemporary music. Some of his many music projects include: Fortress of Amplitude, Powdered Wigs, and Chariots of Fire. Together Jacob and David form like Voltron in the high-NRG electronic music band Extreme Animals and have toured the country every summer for the past 8 years presenting their music, videos, and art.

 

As a founding member of the internationally renowned Paper Rad art collective, US-based electronic producer / multimedia artist Jacob Ciocci has developed a reputation as a creative powerhouse in his own right over the last decade or so... During the same period, he’s also maintained a steady presence amongst the US’s indie rave scene doing solo performances as ROTFLOL, and this self-explanatory-titled collection on Audio Dregs acts as a ‘best of’ of sorts, trawling back through ten years worth of cassettes, videos, animations, self-made CDRs and live recordings for its 24 tracks. In this case, Ciocci’s musical aesthetic certainly parallels the psychedelic eighties bent of his visual work, with the tracks here being composed in ASCII, before being recorded in realtime using vintage Casio keyboards and budget electronics. That said, it’s amazing just how much diversity and depth he’s able to wring out of his pallette and gamecore-centred sounds here.
