ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Psychedelic Avant-pop artist déCollage (AKA Reed Fuchs) performed, recorded, mixed, & mastered his entire conceptual debut album ∞The Telos Amaranthine∞ in his home {Snozberry Studios}. ∞TTA∞ is a cosmically cohesive album, synthesizing an eclectic pallet of electronic and organic instruments. The record began Sept 2009 and slowly became a monolithic task as each song threatened to exceed 180 instrument tracks. déCollage takes a Maximalist approach and favors dustpans, paint cans, and trash kit instead of a traditional drum set. The music is painted over a canvas of found sounds Reed field records, including: leaves, zippers, trains, typewriters, Zippo lighters, and circuit bending. Instead of the standard verse chorus formula, déCollage chooses amorphous song structures that never repeat, flipping the concept of chorus’s on its head. ∞TTA∞ was fully funded by fans through Kickstarter!

∞ To achieve aesthetic harmony, ∞TTA∞ is perfectly symmetrical. Half way through, the record folds back on itself like an infinite Möbius strip, where the first five songs are reversed and flow gaplessly back into each other. déCollage has been likened to Animal Collective, The Mars Volta, and The Books.

∞ “First single, “And how I proposed (my love) to you in Euliki City;” is déCollage’s cover of “My Love” by Justin Timberlake. It’s the first ever déCollage recording and re-imagines JT’s straightforward 4/4 time signature with vibrant push/pull alternations between 3/4, 5/4, and 7/4, atop familiar, yet transmogrified melodies. It’s pop music that sounds absolutely nothing like pop music.” Harrison Garcia, Examiner

∞ The music carries the plot onward like a series of cerebral dream transitions where one dream becomes another, which in turn becomes another… It's a circular ouroboros without a beginning or ending; you could literally listen to it forever without a moment of silence.

∞ Reed explains, “I wanted to make a piece that is impossible: in that it requires the listener to take it in in its fullness, yet the medium of music, by its very nature is confined to being heard chronologically. The duration of life is exceedingly brief, lasting only while a thought lasts. Just as a chariot wheel in rolling rolls only at one point of the wheel; ∞TTA∞ is a circle confined to being heard one brain bit at a time; curiously, in exactly the same way a human’s life lasts only for the period of one seamless stream of thought.”

∞ Reed’s vocal chords channel an onslaught of personas through morphing vocal processors; exploring our fragmented, post-modern world through metaphysics, surrealism, abstraction, and most of all: wonder! déCollage is interested in sounds for their own sake; in this way their music is World, the world of sound, the world’s sound.
