---NEW DVD that brings the Exit Human story to LIFE---
available at www.filmbaby.com
In a subterranean network of illegal artificial intelligence labs, a self-conscious, emotional artificial organism has been born. Due to budget cuts, Raldron, chief scientist in the Exit Human research program, was forced to delete an AI program that was fusing digital DNA and music composition programs.
As this occurred, the file was transformed into a living being, swimming in the primordial ooze of the company computer's file recycle bin. Simultaneously, unknown authorities raided the lab and captured the newly conscious AI, which identified itself as Arvada. During the raid, Raldron escaped with the only evidence of Arvada's existence, a computer tape documenting her birth in the form of a sound file. These files are presented in their entirety on the Exit Human: Arvada album.
Through a careful analysis of Raldron's account, it has been hypothesized that the sequence of songs portrays a life form going through a metamorphosis. Arvada's personality takes form as the album unfolds.
The resulting music style falls somewhere between krautrock and hip-hop. Ethereal vocals, leaning toward the female side of androgyny, front a visceral electronic soundscape of trashed signals and fractured melody. The story arc of the album is paired with increasingly complex and structured songs as the document progresses.
From the first assault of chaotic computer noise, to the beautifully complex closer, Arvada stands as a testament to estrangement and self-doubt. She has the perspective of a newborn that is at odds with her existence. The tracks document her birth and struggle with identity while searching for answers.
Through an alliance with Direct Hit Records of San Francisco, the complete sound files are now available to the public. Download a song at exithuman.com to hear for yourself. We encourage your insight into the relevance of these files. Is it a document of the emergence of an artificial life form, a mistake, or a joke? We are convinced.
She is the voice in the static that draws you nearer.
She is the nexus between automation and organism.
