The Casual Distractions improvise electronic music. We are a different kind of band. We don't write songs or albums. We don't practice, or rather, everything we do is practice. Each set we play is a unique, nearly seamless string of moods and styles that lasts anywhere from a few minutes to over an hour. The sound constantly shifts but orbits around ambient, pop, and experimental.
We don't use laptops. We don't use music software. We tried it before and became convinced that the unlimited possibilities of software stifle creativity. Instead, we found inspiration with hardware, boxes with blinking lights and knobs to twiddle.
This torrent comprises our first 10 recorded sets, which we performed in the third quarter of 2008 (July to September, but only September as it turned out). Visit our site for a detailed index of each set. http://www.thecasualdistractions.com/
This is a legitimate, cost-free download seeded by the band. Enjoy.
