Innerflight Music doesn’t have to stray far from home base to present the latest work from Joe Bellingham, titled The Exiled Meow EP. Like Innerflight, Bellingham is a product of Seattle, and he’s already established himself as a dub, techno, and ambient live act for the active Shameless collective and record label. As a producer, Belligham’s secret weapon is his trusty field recorder. Within its reach no personal moment is safe from sampling - from the operating noises of city buses to the clamor of television news to club-goers’ unguarded conversational moments to, as the EP title implies, cats’ meows. This method of audio vérité is an art, the character and originality of which can be heard in his productions.
The Exiled Meow EP is what one would expect from someone who stalks the urban environment on the prowl for suspect sounds. Starting things off is “The Techno Leo”, a sub dweller with a bass line that flows underneath a heady drone. The cut is also laden with progressive synth stabs and highs that scatter about in ambiguous shadows. The title track follows with whispers and the kind of 909 drum hits that makes bodies jack before introducing an ethereal melody. Distant vocals then raise the question: ‘Is this the world that I have seen in my dreams?’ Closing the EP, “Shaper Shifted Soul” slips bending synths and deep pads into the background as a soulful vocal confession takes middle stage. These three tracks show that in a world of packaged samples, Bellingham beckons the brave at heart into an ominous exploration of found sound.
