Brandon Locher Gracious Prankster

Running a blog isn’t entirely too difficult, but what is hard is trying to establish a solid writing rhythm. A style that doesn’t repeat itself, much of this is the responsibility of the writer, and a decent fraction of the work depends on the content you’re trying to share.

Brandon Locher is a recording, and visual artists from Johnstown, PA. He picked up the art in 2006, and has over 50 releases under a variety of monikers. Brandon is what you call DIY at its rarest form. He’s innovative, prolific, and seems a purest to the art of creative exploration, which is just a fancy way of saying experimental.  As a writer, his email regarding his amazing piece of sound art, “Conversations, 2012” is exactly what I needed to hear to remove the stagnation of repeating myself over and over again. Brandon explains the projects as “mastering the prank call” and described the process as “spontaneous communication, by fooling the person into thinking that they are talking to an actual person, when only they are responding to a recording of the previous recorded person’s conversation response.” The results are fascinating, refreshing, and Locher’s dedication to sound experimentation is all over his Soundcloud page, so while I posted on the this particular piece, there’s a nice batch of goodies to explore. Make sure to go to this website and see the catalog here.
