Trance And The Arcade


(Chuck From Meta-matics, All Scars)

Troubleman Unlimited 51

Released on March 18, 2003


TRANCE AND THE ARCADE is the newest addition to the Troubleman Solo Singles Series (tmuSSS), led by one Chuck Bettis, of Brooklyn NY. He was in the groundbreaking META*MATICS, and is currently in the ALL-SCARS (Dischord). Chuck Bettis' solo electronic compositions collected here reflect a wide range of aesthetics and a unique sense of what sound should be. The sounds are unexpected, in a singular auditory world created from primitive technology and deceivingly simple sound sources that defy description upon listening.

I found out about this project when guitarist Mick Barr from Orthrelm/Ocrilim(Octis),Octis(Ocrilim),Crom-Tech,Krallice,Oldest collaborated with Chuck Bettis(Trance And The Arcade's sole member)on a live improv laptop/noise insane guitar jam. Thats what this 7 inch is too,laptop noise by Chuck Bettis from punk band Meta-Matics(which featured Crom-Tech's drummer). Its a really interesting release...weirdo atmospheric harsh and strange noise,sometimes entrancing sometimes abrasive.. The first song "Dripp" actually appeared on the live jam i mentioned with orthrelm's guitarist and it features a sample of some girl saying "i think,think,think....i think there was noise everywhere" over the top of schizophrenia guitar. I don't listen to tons of just pure noise but this one is a great one of its type,and the artwork rules too,totally fukd.The 3 songs are short and it makes you want to play the whole 7 inch about 3 times in a row. Put on the song "Blinkle Stop" and hold a bag of chex mix up to the wall while pretending 400 pounds of dogfood are blocking the path to the last known vending machine in all the world!!!
