The "Launch Pad" series was created by Talibam! to explore new sound relationships in the digital world. Using recent album releases by contemporary artists as the launching pad, Talibam! feels inspired to paint and mold the music into a new species, blurring the lines between inconspicuous and conspicuous consumption/appropriation.
Launch Pad #8 features Oneohtrix Point Never's "Garden of Delete" as the catalyst. More Launch Pads to follow.
