All songs by Architecture & Community Planning (c) 1998 (SOCAN/BMI).
ARCHPLAN was a studio collaberation with
Joey Haley. Its goal was to create a "bureocratic music".
The songs on this first edition of A&CP were literally studio 'constructions', using tape loops for rhythm
tracks, and ukuleles driven through effects processors for some of the
sounds. All songs were recorded at CHSR-FM studios in Fredericton, NB.
Exotic locations were used for the lyric settings. 'Soapstone Eskimoes' and 'Easter Island Statues' are the most accessible tracks, with 'primitive' rhythms and guitar-like instrumentation. 'Crab Legs on the Beach' is a minimalist exercise, and 'Sassifras 4B' is an almost ambient instrumental.
SONGS: Soapstone Eskimoes, Easter Island Statues, Architecture and Community Planning, My Tranquility, Crab Legs on the Beach, Spy Gem, Sassifras 4B, Stucco and Tofu.
