rotflol Rolling On the Floor Laughing Out Loud (LP + DVD, £18.75)label: audio dregs recordings
Solo music of Jacob Ciocci, founding member of the internationally renowned art collective, Paper Rad, video professor, and multimedia artist. Ciocci has been a creative powerhouse for years: he animates, makes videos, comics, internet art and paintings for DIY circles as well as for eminent institutions like Deitch Projects, Foxy Productions, The MOMA in NYC, and the Migros Museum in Switzerland. Over the last decade, he's haunted the basements, house parties and micro-raves of America and Europe, doing solo performances as well as playing with his band, Extreme Animals. His artwork and videos are known for their brightness, manic energy, and jarring "pop" imagery, but they're never without humour, or philosophical intent. Ciocci's music and art, along with Paper Rad's monumental output, have been (to say the least) highly influential on a younger generation of artists and musicians. ROTFLOL is a "best of" collection of Jacob's solo music, soundtracks from videos and animations, as well as a selected discography of self released cassettes, hand made CDRs, 7 inch vinyl, and live recordings. The music is often composed in ACII, blasted through a series of vintage Casio keyboards and budget electronics, recorded in real time and captured onto rainbow-coloured floppy disks before being mixed down to digibeta, for that perfect sound. This collection is an attempt to collect this musical output as its own musical statement on vinyl LP, along with a full DVD of selected video works (some classics, such as the Peace Tape, and some yet unseen face melters).
