Neo-Industrialism/Found Sound Part 2: David Fischoff

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

David Fischoff poses as a Chicago-based librarian by day, but with his latest album The Crawl, which has been a product of some five years of work, David has created an entire record’s worth of music from thousands of samples. Why it’s found music: As David described in an interview with Chicago Public Radio the album is a mixture of collected samples such as “whirling synth-tone, Atari sound effect, thin piano, trumpets, cheap plastic bass” combined with sounds made himself which include such unorthodox instruments as hockey pucks and wooden blocks. The result is a magnificent blend of what superficially sounds like ambient-based rock, but is much deeper far below its surface.
