Music for Billy Chainsaw's Alphabill...a love story

released October 14, 2015

Music for :

“BILLY CHAINSAW’S ALPHABILL (a love story)”: an art exhibition
London’s Horse Hospital from 6 – 28 March 2015.

Billy Chainsaw says: “While re-watching Godard’s Alphaville some years ago, the thematic and visual similarities between the movie and the writings of William S. Burroughs hit me harder than a slug from a .45. The more I investigated the connections, the more apparent they became… until my journey reached a conclusion that resonates in Burroughs’ last ever written words: ‘Love? What is it? Most natural painkiller what there is. LOVE’.”

Anni Hogan & Billy Chainsaw formed C.H.I.P. Chainsaw.Hogan. Installation.Project. in January 2014 and launched their long term multi media collaboration with a Chainsaw film & Hogan musical performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London October 2014 for Richard Strange 'Burroughs mini=meltdown' 'Language is A Virus from Outerspace' Alphabill is the first in a series of C.H.I.P. releases leading up to a major multi media installation in 2017

Hogan composed and designed the sonic landscape for 'Alphabill' with Martin Bowes. Heavy drones and low throbbing organs with blues influenced melancholic pianos share the palet with otherworldly sonic inventions creating a tension filled dystopian exploration of Chainsaw's Burroughs-Alphaville inhabited world.
