'Keening and smudged breakbeats and finely-grained electronica arrangements, the debut from Wesqk Coast for Italy’s OOH-sounds' [Boomkat]
In the search for new sound grammars, Wesqk Coast proposes a linguistic approach to music in which sounds are words, signs. As for a neo-language, informality, contamination, deviations and its gradual normalization trace the dynamics of control and re-absorption of expressive forms.
‘S.T.A.S.H. ?...well, there is no actual meaning behind the title’s acronym, I am interested in its cryptographic potential.. like language, music works through a combination of minor units, capable of unpacking an endless world of meanings…’
When asked to give some thoughts about his work, the reply was a slew of stock images and short quotes: text analytics, psychometrics, data storms, predictive technologies, ethics of psychological profiling... S.T.A.S.H. is revealed through rapid suggestions and music hybrids in which overload of inputs and frenetic absorption re-elaborate into a true personal stylistic mash – today’s media.
