A dead mouse, yesterday

Mus (2014)

Mus is a deconstruction of the popular music genre "dubstep". This genre often causes consternation among analogue synthesis enthusiasts who find that dubstep in some way cheapens or tarnishes its origins, but the genre has also been at least partially responsible for the revival in interest by manufacturers in creating new analogue synthesizers, which has certainly been a good thing for the "true" enthusiast.

This piece takes the various standard elements of dubstep tracks and re-works them into what could perhaps be thought of as a Cubist survey of the genre, and particularly the oevre of the artist Deadmaus.
