Small Life Form is a musical project of Brian John Mitchell (Remora, Vlor, etc) that started in 1998 based around recording 30 seconds of sound (the limitation of Sound Recorder in Windows 3.11) & stretching & adding echo & layering the results. Over the next five years Mitchell’s interest in 1960s classical music (most notably Gyorgy Ligeti) & electroacoustic music (especially label mates Kobi & Clang Quartet) led to the recording of the debut album One (2003) with pieces constructed from horns, melodica, cymbal, voice, & radio astronomy.

In 2007 at the urging of Shaun Sandor (Promute) & CJ Boyd, Small Life Form became a live project initially built around voice, horns, & feedback eventually refining to the current main instrumentation of voice, feedback, copper pipe, triangles, aircraft lock, optical theremin, melodica, & super simple synthesizer. Early versions of the live show can be heard on 2008’s Alive & followed up by the studio recordings of Lost Kisses Soundtrack (2009) & Satsop (source sounds recorded in 2008 in a nuclear cooling tower & released in 2012).

Voice in the Sky takes the Small Life Form live show & allows it to breathe & develop. It starts with reverbed out layers of ghostly voices building into walls of sound & decaying noise. A big slab of drone taking you into Small Life Form’s world for 45 minutes.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
