THN057 >> JASON CORDER - MICROCOSMOS
      [11.05.2004 | TRICKY MICROHOUSE SUREPLAYER]

Jason Corder from Lexington, Kentucky, is a multi talent and 
truly busy with his many creative outlets – besides composing 
tasty Microhouse under his real name, he composes dense ambient 
environments under his Off The Sky (on Autoplate.org) and Zen 
Savauge (on Subsouce.de & Databloem.nl) Alter-Egos. Furthermore, 
he’s playing in a traditional rockband. These days, he’s also 
working on a soundtrack, a gallery visual-art show and on a new 
ambient album. Jason was part of the Thinner North-America Mini-
tour early March this year and played shows in Montréal, Québéc 
City and Ottawa, presenting a liveset that consists main parts 
of this album.  

Microcosmos is a hybrid word that is based off the vast plethora 
of tiny sound bits Jason manipulated to compose the beat-
structures and textural beds of the music.  Using a Beringer 
measurement microphone, he spent all last summer (2002) sampling 
out on his parents farm - bugs, insects, and numerous other small 
roving entities.  One interesting fact is that he used an empty 
gallon jug full of crazy flies:  Jason devised a way to entrap 
hundreds of flying bugs into a container and snuck the microphone 
down inside to capture a viscous furry of buzzing, flying, crack-
ling, and crawling fly sounds.  From these field recording he 
created hundreds of percussive sounds used as a basis for the 
beats.
    
But honestly the underlying theme of the album is not so much an 
ode to insects but more to the vast unseen world around us. Corder 
actually derived most of the song titles from ideas pertaining to 
chemical reactions (Seratone, Twilight Sleep (an old combination 
drug used during pregnancy years ago) as well as social microcosms 
he experienced throughout his life. Oakland CA in particular is 
based off of my experiences of the west coast minimal-techno 
scene that influenced a vast majority of his earlier works. But 
most simply, the title Microcosmos fits perfectly in that the 
style of the album is that of the popular microhouse genre that 
is prevalent today. 

Although minimal in some instances, the album predominantly 
tends to really fill in the tight sonic cracks through a use of 
ethereal, watery synth pads resting gently atop a garden of glitchy 
sounds.  

So Microcosmos is not so much a social commentary but rather a 
concept based off the smallitude that exists under our noses.  As 
an artist, Jason Corder relies the simple fact that even though our 
egos are empowered though the vastness of what our eyes conquer, 
there is a humbling scope of existence and power that we cannot 
perceive through the senses - in the world around, and in our own 
minds.
