About

a.P.A.t.T.’ (pronounced however you want)[1] would have been a growing group of people and a growing idea. Most of the things a.P.A.t.T. do are related to passion, music, art, each other and new people, travel, time, ‘learning’, ‘archiving’, and imagination. a.P.A.t.T. is a Positive Approach to Totality[1]. a.P.A.t.T. has recorded and released ‘music’ that is probably best described as serious progressive pop, titty pop, slap stick, noise, and sound. True to ‘pop’ in a truer sense of the word, a.P.A.t.T. would have and does ‘produce’ ‘music’, ‘sound’, and ‘images’ that cite commonplace experiences of consumption and ‘music’. Categories of ‘music’ are not very applicable to a.P.A.t.T. because their albums and singles can range so much, within and between ‘songs’. They treat ‘performance’ as space to perform, play, experiment, joke, and be serious, and are recognisable through their unique and awkward choice in simple white clothing with the ‘a.P.A.t.T.’ logo printed on the front. Members of a.P.A.t.T., ‘musical’ or otherwise, have left and others have come. Today, the members of a.P.A.t.T. who play musical instruments and wear the outfit are General Midi, Dorothy Wave, Field Marshall Stack, Master Fader, and The Count In. Allegedly, that look, and the output, ‘musical’ or otherwise, has the purpose of binding those involved and pricking people’s ears as to who a.P.A.t.T. are, who they are not, and what they might be. If there needs to be a point to a.P.A.t.T., then it might be to absorb everything a.P.A.t.T. can, in a positive way. a.P.A.t.T. are about reflecting and building, bricolage and experimental music, seemingly.[2]
