 Description     

The title of this new album by London duo Project Mycelium refers to their methods of arranging instrumentation (piano, cello) and found sounds into loose narratives, producing what they call "mundane scenes". These scenes are unspecified events and references, flattened into strange, eerie collages. Though a theme of mundaneness sounds like a risk of tedium, the album draws aesthetic qualities out of the short-lived nuances of everyday experience. Unrelated contexts and subjects align and bring about strange new thematic textures before dispersing. At times, it is humorous, at others disorientating or vague as if in daydream; at still others pensive and even seedy. Ultimately, Mundane Behaviour is an unhurried, unpredictable and voyeuristic series of accidental stories and spaces.

Press     

"On paper, itís easy to infer something melodic or soppy from a piano and cello duo releasing on tape - a fractured chamber music, or perhaps a willfully complex academic music. In practice though, this is far more surprising and unpredictable, emotionally washed out and texturally exploratory beyond expectations in a casing of fucked up found sounds and voice samples. The digitally garbled voices and other unidentifiable snippets evoke a skewed vision of the mundane (omg, hence the title!) and the everyday as blasted through a breaking prism - while the creak of cello and watery piano chords captured in pin drop quiet variably soundtrack proceedings with an ambient heavenly stillness or impending doomy dread." ~ (The Quietus, Spool's Out feature)
