“nolite te bastardes carborundorum” is a mesmerizing collection of improvised drones, emanating from acoustic instruments and processed though electronic treatments.
Consisting of Jennifer Slezak (mandolin and violin), Jen Powers (hammer dulcimer) and Stephanie Dean (accordion), Autophonia improvised these five pieces over the course of two sessions at engineer Keith Hanlon’s home studio. Each member of Autophonia controlled the processing of their instrument: this is a document of a live performance, not a studio creation.
"The trio’s ability to ride a collective wavelength is fascinating; while Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum couldn’t have been made by one person, at times it feels like Autophonia fused into one mind to create their brain-wave music." - Bandcamp Daily
"These are no mere drones – they shift perceptibly at the players’ command, taking on shapes and textures that fit more comfortably into the nooks and crannies between post-rock bombasts." - Tabs Out
