Infinite Number of Sounds
Radio Whales (Infinite Number of Sounds Recording Company)
By D.X. Ferris

Published: Wednesday, August 10, 2005

Infinite Number of Sounds is a perennial nominee for Best Alternative/Electronic act at Scene''s Cleveland Music Awards. And for a largely instrumental group with an experimental bent, the group rocks hard and never strays too far from a hook.

Behind their wall of art rock, they might be closet metalheads. "Washington Monument" would fit in your favorite stoner band''s set list. "The Red Human-Headed Bull" slides down a deep groove, from guitar arabesques to frantic metal fretwork. The album ends with a string of performance-art suites. The group''s live shows are intricately edited multimedia presentations that synchronize with the music. Stripped of that visual presentation, Infinite Number''s music is just as evocative.

Few bands manage to be as stimulating visually as they are musically, but Cleveland''s Infinite Number of Sounds is all about sensory overload. The band''s multi-media live shows are both dizzying and dramatic, with the four-piece incorporating digital video imagery into their sets and synching it up with the beat. The band''s amorphous electro-rock is just as elaborate, spanning everything from experimental electronica to bristling post-rock on their latest, Time Wants a Skeleton. Bounded by nothing but the players'' own imaginations, this group''s sound is among the most open-ended around.

On any level, you must love a band whose self-description includes the phrase "from breakbeat to babershop." This band isn''t just a clever name; they attack the concept literally, building a multimedia imagery assault around an electro-rock firmament. The projected video is actually edited live to the beat by artist Gummow. As apt to perform at an art installation as they are at a music summit, Infinite Number of Sounds seems to be one of the more interesting tickets on a very full weekend.

Saturday * Northside Tavern

Infinite Number of Sounds from Cleveland forges a sound foundry of synths and samples to create a diverse collage that''s both ambient and wild. The troupe calls itself an "electro-rock/media-art performance group" and they run the gamut from moody, almost cocktail-lounge Jazz ("Emo Joe") to video game soundtrack Techno ("Book of Destiny") to something resembling both in the same song. Their cut-n-paste approach makes for an interesting listening experience, as their songs are best viewed as movements in a symphony (sometimes within a singular song itself) than as standard "Rock" songs. But, unlike a lot of laptop Beethovens, their music is infused with a sense of humor that you don''t have to be an Electronica aficionado, or even a "music insider," to understand. The humorous elements -- like the Kung Fu yell samples in "Disfingered" -- actually serve as punctuation of sorts to signal a sea change in the music. Their show also has visual accompaniment in the form of video projections that serve as a kind of "dreaming out loud" to the music. The projections are a fever dream of pop culture that make as many, if not more, references than INS'' music does. The images aren''t just random, though; they fall precisely in harmony with the music to create a unique blend of the concrete and abstract, making the observer both think and groove. Infinite Number of Sounds is an aural "junk drawer" whose found-sound objects are arranged into a cohesive whole to form a hybrid of outsider art and cybersonic gleam. If Mozart owned a hi-tech industry, Infinite Number of Sounds would be played in the halls all day. The band members -- who also splinter off into a just-short-of-infinite number of musical and artistic side-projects (see https://www.tradebit.com for the run-down) -- are currently working on their second full-length CD, tentatively titled Radio Whales and tagged with a release date this spring.

Cool Cleveland

Cleveland''s never seen anything like them: half rock thrashers, half experimental video artists, half hip-hop break beatsters, half tripped out studio wizards - it all adds up to something sweet, sharp and sincerely new.
