TORN HAWK "LOSSMAKER" COSMIC SYNTH FUNK 12"
"Lossmaker is a project from Brooklyn-based video artist and musician Luke Wyatt, who also records under the Torn Hawk moniker (with two releases in 2012 on the acclaimed label L.I.E.S.) Lossmaker employs the distressed collage sensibility present in both his renowned video work and the Torn Hawk project.
But while Torn Hawk's more propulsive work toys with the deconstructionist fringes of post-punk/no-wave, off-kilter mechanical funk, and crude production methods, Wyatt created Lossmaker as an outlet for more hi-fidelity, texture-obsessed pieces influenced by contemporary minimal and film composers such as Michael Nyman. The elements of decay, noise management, and framed mistakes explored in Wyatt's video output find aural expression in the five pieces on the debut EP, refracted through a filter of profound melancholy."
