New Owl Box Tracks

I'm a big fan of my friend John's (aka The Owl Box) music, I did a post about his last track and now here's a post about his new one...

His newest track is called CR78, named after the drum machine from which the samples came.  It's a fine example of making music the back-to-front way.  The humble iPod shuffle is an unlikely thing to use as a sequencer, but John's willingness to forfeit his compositional rights has led him into filling his iPods full of drum samples and letting them shuffle away... the result is an epic example of how to annoy people who think that labeling something as 'IDM' is a good way of pigeonholing music.
