Say hello to my little friend…

There is a long story about ODORBABY: How it came to be, what adventures it has led me on, and where it is now. Much of the story of ODORBABY involves drinking too much coffee.

ODORBABY started out as an unnamed harsh noise project I created while living in Austin, Texas. Very quickly, the project developed an identity as an anti-consumption/ anti-music industry/anti-corporate culture entity. The general idea was to take the blown-out, over-saturated, consumer-centric information environment I was living in at the time, and to feed it back onto itself.

I figured why not make the project even anti-self; hence it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

There are many ways to interpret ODORBABY. Here is what ODORBABY has to say about itself:

ODORBABY IS AWESOME

INFORMATION CONTAMINATION USUALLY IN ENGLISH ODORWAVE EXPLAINS HOW

ALL OF THE MARKETING AND HYPE YOU CRAVE, WITHOUT THE BURDEN OF AN ACTUAL PRODUCT TO SLOW YOU DOWN

At the present time, the original inspiration for this project has faded, and I haven’t been very active with it. The current circumstances in the US have gone further than I could have ever imagined going with ODORBABY, so the original inspiration has declined.

I am told that some of the content has been archived at the Sound Archive of the British Library. This episode presents some of the less-abrasive content from this project.
