Lilith

Lilith is a project of my very talented friend Scott Gibbons. Lilith is a
set of deeply fractured soundscapes that take as their focus repetition of
simple themes in novel ways. Lilith doesn't particularly strive to make a
point; it exists in its own space and with its own goals.

Scott's music has gone through many changes through the years, starting out
as raw, tape-loop driven experimental, going through a dance industrial
period, and then moving into the odd, fractured, experimental territory he
inhabits now. He's got a knack for odd rhythms and beautiful fragments of
sound, and his packaging shows his amazing command of the copy machine.

There's a very good interview [remote link] with Scott at the Chicago
Soundweb [remote link] that I think all people interested in Lilith should
check out. He gives a pretty good explanation of what he's up to and
discusses some of the more interesting (not to say salacious) details of his
work.

A Lilith Discography

With The New Elementals

The New Elementals were not primarily Scott's project; the group was a
product of Scott's friend / mentor Steve, an appreciator of all things
industrialish, and a noted member (now) of the Seattle experimental scene
(mostly as an owner of a series of well-respected Seattle record stores).

The Elementals' performances (which is what the first tape is a recording
of) were designed to be ritualistic and not easily comprehensible, which I
think is communicated well. What isn't is the live sense of drama (as the
note I've transcribed below states) and spontaneous weird bits which got
thrown in.

Forrest-

The music on this tape is taken from New Elementals performances,
87-88. No audio recording is gonna capture the costumes, odors and
total nonesense of our stage shows. So just don't assume that
you're getting an adequate picture of what we were about, ok? Bend
over and shut up and pretend you enjoy it.
