Oscar McClure’s ‘Compost’ is organic experimental hip hop grown with bodily sounds, everyday objects, field recordings and an SP-303. Through his use of extended techniques and chance procedures, McClure associates various musical and non-musical materials to form a sonic ecosystem. Both noisy and meditative, this collection of atmospheric textures and phasing beats cultivates the boundaries shared between contemporary improvised music and hip hop.
