NEW RELEASE — V O Y E U R : TV HITS 17

tvhits17-flat4

TV HITS 17 is the fifth album by V O Y E U R, the Montreal based duo featuring Byron (vague mémoire / Room Control) and Tom Jarvis (pachyderm / Hey Majesty).

Through the use of analogue and digital technologies, for this album the duo incorporated the key ingredients of Electro-Spectralism (founded by the avant-garde Mexican music school, Los Espejos, in the 1970’s), with elements of House Music and various television clips from the 1960′s to the 1990′s.  This epoch of television was when soap operas ruled the afternoons, children learned about the effects of drugs and other societal dangers with PSA’s, couples made popcorn and watched “The Movie Of The Week”, and night owls ordered the latest gadgets and products through infomercials. If you fell asleep in front of the television, you awoke to a high-pitched tone signaling the end of broadcast and a screen full of static.
