This release is a collaboration with Magnetic South.
In Bloomington, Indiana, there are few who are unfamiliar with the skills of TYLER DAMON. Having collaborated with the likes of Darin Gray, Mars Williams, and Little Howlin’ Wolf, as well as extended runs in Thee Open Sex & Circuit Des Yeux, he holds the uncanny ability to morph between genres and musical eras effortlessly while simultaneously harnessing the spontaneity of improvisation. His solo work is a beast all its own, presented for the first time ever with Softened Skull, a totally analog recording captured live to 1/4″ stereo tape at Magnetic South – no overdubs, no post-production magic. Over the course of 7 tracks, TYLER DAMON displays his prowess with ultra-minimal exercises in alternative percussion, covering a spectrum from free-jazz and avant-garde abstractions to grating dissonance and borderline junk-metal abuse. An extremely dramatic and dynamic affair.
