Product Information

Bio:

New York-based digital artist, Bill Byrne, and his wife, Suzanne are the voices behind The Painful Leg Injuries.

The Quicker Are The Encumbered is based on Einstein's theory of special relativity, that states that by the time an object has reached the speed of light it's mass would become infinite. Each of the six compositions on this release explore this notion, adding masses of layered sound with varying amounts of velocity in the music. An Ice Cream Truck Flipped Over And We All Got Some opens the set with abstract noise that evolves/devolves into a jingly swirl that reverses the suggestion of the song title. Everything That Comes In Stages Left In Birthday Hat begins with soft melody played by Suzanne on her cello, with Bill's very warped trumpet, that builds into large dynamic moments.

Bill Byrne - computer, homemade electronics, old instruments and voice
Suzanne Byrne - cello

Recorded in Brooklyn, August and September 2006
