Hello listeners.

I find that I’m always draw to experiential art. The kind of art that takes me to a place, or more accurately, a different state of mind. These are usually qualities I aim for in my own output. Even the process of art is just that—when you get into the ‘zone’, and you’ve got tunnel vision, losing yourself in it. It’s like meditating, or at least some form of meditation.

Patrick Hume’s latest work under the Analog Cannibal moniker dwells on these ideas. Ohm: Music For Meditation, out now on Little Heart Records, is his latest release. The music on the album was made with a joking nod to department store New Age music displays, but the work isn’t a joke. It’s serious work that is aptly named, and is conducive to peaceful environments.

Patrick has been involved in Louisville’s music scene for quite a time. At one point, he was deep in the hardcore scene with bands such as Lords, Abscise, and Brain Banger. Not too long after, he started producing work under the name Analog Cannibal, and hasn’t stopped. When he isn’t teaching guitar, Patrick is more than likely adding to his extensive catalog. He seems to have an insane work ethic, that leads to tons of material.

Analog Cannibal is definitely a project with an eclectic discography, but this is definitely a noticeable shift sonically, and it stands out. Patrick isn’t sure how much more he’s willing to explore this sound but he isn’t writing it off quite yet. He said he certainly got lost in recording these pieces, and thinks on these experiences fondly. Whether tongue-in-cheek or not, Patrick’s attempt definitely hits its mark.

The album is being package as a download code & poster with art by James Southard. You can see more of his work at jamesrsouthard.com.

You can find out more about Patrick’s musical output via the Analog Cannibal website or bandcamp page.

I apologize to those of you who tried to listen in today…due to some issues, only half of the episode aired. Beyond my control…but, BUT, I have the FULL interview here for you right here and right now! (just use the player below)

My guest today was Amy Ritter, an Ohio State University Grad student who does everything from sculptures consisting of raw materials like old denim, to performance art akin to the Fluxus Movement. We had a great discussion…
