The Cooky Creativity of OddBlossom

Strippers, insects, and zombie dogs mashed in old time film against a back drop of experimental pop await those brave enough to face garbage dump wonderlands of collected media scrambled and reassembled under monochrome names like Pop Poubelism.
   
Some time around 2006 an adventure of growing pains was undertaken and attributed to a childish alter ego,  Bram Urban.  OddBlossom became a public archive of audio works discarded in inevitable growth and way past their expiration date.  Eventually explorations in video led back to old musical exploration and once again the child has room to play once again.

Armed with the artistic vision and commercial aspirations of Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol, Bram Urban set his sights on making a statement on the disposibility of popular music. Fueled by the Outsider Music notion of finding perfection in imperfection OddBlossom achieves the state of songwriting rawness lost in the blasé standards of modern plastic production techniques, Bram Urban's post contemporary sound is born of what the french labeled as " Poubellisme". The junk art aesthetic manifests itself through out his works as Bram Urban destroys multi tracks after early development preventing revision or the endless polishing of trite origins.  By releasing the first creation and making a decision not to censor the muse, Bram Urban thins the barriers between Composition and Improvisation. Instead the artist turns to a perpetual reuse of a vast collection of old material, remixing again and again recordings, remixes, previous creations in cycles until out of chaos and assembly a natural shape emerges. Thus Bram Urban serves as the mirror on celebrity and narcissist culture while maintaining a sound that its completely distinctive.
