The Orielles have just announced details of their experimental new EP, The Goyt Method, out on 26th May featuring brand new songs created from randomly chosen parts of tracks from their celebrated fourth album, Tableau, released in October on Heavenly Recordings.
The band said:
“Our concept for The Goyt Method was birthed from our interest in cybernetics, improvisation and experimental electronic music. We wanted to zoom out of Tableau and disconnect all the pieces, rearranging them in new ways to create variations of songs, which encapsulate the whole record. We left this part of the process completely down to chance, adopting an online roulette wheel to choose our stems. This way of creating music was familiar to us from spending a lot of time remixing and record collecting, gaining an invested interest in deep listening and avant-garde electronic music.
The name itself comes from the initial location in which we remixed with Joel Patchett, a wintery and freezing cold Goyt Mill. From here, we coined the term ‘Goytism’ or ‘to Goyt’ which was basically our way of describing the process of repurposing and resampling acoustic sounds through digital production, making them unrecognisable from their original source.
The band have also shared a video for the track ‘Tableau 002’. Watch here:
“We met up with Beck Cooley to discuss a collaboration in making a video for a Goyt Method track and instantly hit it off with our adoration for janky electronic IDM and experimental sci-fi and body horror film. We’d all recently watched ‘Tetsuo: Iron Man’ and suggested Beck watch it and it was here that the video concept was born. We loved the stop motion and the lo-fi noisy aesthetic of the film, the man meets machine ideology particularly appealed.
The way in which we remixed tracks from Tableau for this EP was very much inspired by a collaboration with AI and letting online randomisation choose the stems for us to pull into the track. We felt this was pretty apt and decided to pay homage to Tetsuo in a ‘man meets machine’ collision of metal and computers.
After successfully playing at this year’s SxSW festival in Austin, Texas and a run of U.K. headline shows, including a sold-out London gig at the Electric in Brixton, the band head over to Europe today for further headline gigs. Pre-order The Goyt Method EP HERE
