"Review of 'Triple Acid Foot'"

Probably not a release for the tender of heart or the weak of ear, “Triple Acid Foot” is part glitch-core, part noise, and yet even has this dorm/indie rock thing going on too. Will Redmond’s Blipvert project will no doubt turn many heads for its genius and raw intensity if not for his overt sense of structureless mayhem. One could compare this to Otto Van Schirach without a blink but never could you call this clever masterpiece derivative. If you like your blips and bleeps with a big helping of balls-to-the-wall pandemonium, than Blipvert is your sweetened ice tea.

"Review of Triple Acid Foot"

BlipVert is another name for Will Redmond, formerly a guitarist for Ron Anderson's great band PAK. BlipVert claims he is here to split our heads open and that he does! Twisted, noisy, warped drum machine and strange samples squished through the sonic blender. Fast paced electronic eruptions tightly wound and ever-changing. Will sets his sequencers on stun as they constantly shift and bend the beats, rarely giving us any time to rest. Bits of melodies and odd voices are often spinning in the mix, adding a recognizable theme or thread. This sounds like it was done on an old tape recorder, splicing tape, going backwards and forwards at different speeds, the way Zappa used to do it in the mid-to-late sixties. BlipVert does a fine job of turning sounds inside-out, stretching those electronic sounds into all types of strange shapes, blowing minds and providing a glimpse of things to come, when computers take over and spoon feed us all electrical energy direct.

"Review of Triple Acid Foot"

Redmond is poised to help shape the future of noise, experimental and computer music. While his compositions are not yet seamless and not yet perfected (he's a young man after all), BlipVert has already achieved (and excuse the anachronism) exactly what the futurists could not - true representation of chaos and kineticism, given the technology at hand, and served in a still palatable medium. All things considered (for this is neither passive nor easy listening), BlipVert's music comes off as relatively balanced, retaining a sense of structural and rhythmic integrity, all the while introducing new and demanding ideas at almost every fraction of a second.

"Review of BlipVert live performance @ Splice party @ Solas, New York City, May 2006"

...Blipvert's noisier set included experiments with echoed vocal sounds and optical controllers, and fantastic, spastic dancing. The jaw-dropping highlight of the evening was the sudden appearance of fiery, freeform alto saxophonist John Savage, who burst from the shadows with horn wailing in the middle of an intense Blipvert number.... -

"Radio Review of Triple Acid Foot"

For a pleasent suprise we have "Triple Acid Foot" from BlipVert. This takes a little effort to listen to but is worth it. Digital Noise-iness, multi layers, and computer goodness abound. It sounds oh so familiar but yet distant. If you are into Kid 606 and Skinny Puppy, try it! Winslow just informed me that Blipvert is a reference to Max Headroom (remember the 80's). Blipvert has something to do with receiving too much information at once (which can cause one's head to explode). Now it all makes sense! - WCNI Radio 90.9 FM Connecticut

"Review of skr(ep)"

Oakland’s electronic artist Blipvert once again delivers the goods. Crafty electronica that’s propped up with glitchy breaks, indie pop hooks, and laptop noise, “skr(ep)” is surprisingly dense for only being twenty-five minutes long or so. Chaotic atmospheres with disenchanting noise and gritty samples will leave you feeling desolate, alone, and almost gives a sense of panic.

"Review of skr(ep)"

Behind the name BlipVert is one Will Redmond, who has been playing music for fifteen years now, playing rock and metal bands, but of course (??) turned towards electronic and experimental music later on. Currently he's in Oakland. California, and plays with all sorts of people from the Bay area and with various bands, but BlipVert is his solo project. Here he sees himself as being influenced by say Aphex Twin, Skinny Puppy, Squarepusher and Kid 606. This all can be noticed in the highly fucked up music that he produces. Built around short loops, which he fanatically plays in a highly disjointed manner. Breakcore is never far away, but it's not an exclusive domain for him, even when he genuinely plays a fucked up tune. In 'Gettem Irvan' the beat is rather continuous, but the best pieces are the closing 'Cohesion Of Solid Souls' with it's improvised cello playing and the opening 'Candycane Man' which is almost like a real popsong, including robotized vocals. To different ends of the music coin, but with the three tracks in the middle, BlipVert shows you can get away with it.

"User review on Itunes - skr(ep)"

This EP manages to tow that fine line between genius and insanity. An impressive outing for the adventurous and open-minded. "Gettem Irvan" and "Cohesion of Solid Souls" are the standouts.

"User review on Itunes - skr(ep)"

If you have not heard BlipVert yet....Then it's time. This EP tells a story of Blipvert's dynamics, from ambient to classical, to avant-garde thrash to electro punk. For the timid, tracks 1, 4, and 5. Fot the adventurous, any of them! "Eat the Ink," an un-edited live performance, will convince you this is not black magic in the studio, but rather a musician's journey on both composition AND performance levels.

Feeling a bit camera shy


BlipVert is the moniker/pseudonym of Will Redmond
BlipVert has been featured on New York radio (WKCR) and New York electronic music events (e.g. Ontological Theatre's Noise Festival, SPLICE, Warper Party). BlipVert's debut CD, 'Triple Acid Foot,' has been reviewed as 'a clever masterpiece (' and 'twisted, warped drum machines squished through the sonic blender (NYC Downtown Music Gallery).' Will has performed as BlipVert all over the greater East and West Coasts, Europe, and Scandinavia, and has recieved airplay internationally as well as in the U.S.

BlipVert came to the forefront of Will's identity in Brooklyn, New York in a small room above an animal hospital in the winter of 2001. Will had been a fan of a wide variety of jazz, metal, thrash, progressive, and electronic music all his life. Graduating from New York University and earning his keep mostly as a teacher and guitarist in the greater New York area, Will became increasingly inspired to go his own way musically and spiritually. After acquiring a laptop and a small sampler and intently listening the likes of Squarepusher, the Future Sound of London, Aphex Twin, Skinny Puppy, Brian Eno, and Autechre Will set to work on creating his own personal brand of electronic music.

Wanting to capture the intense energy of his compositions, Will decided on choosing for himself the moniker BlipVert, a term he came across in an episode of the television series 'Max Headroom.' A Blipvert was a super-accelerated television advertisement that made certain people have seizures and eventually explode. The vibrant and often frustrating pace of life in New York City combined with Will's experience and practice of playing free jazz, metal, and aggressive improvisational music provided the perfect combination to bring forward a truly unique style of musical expression.

Will's 2005 BlipVert release, "Triple Acid Foot," is a solid electronic debut and the result of countless hours of editing, programming, and production. Will achieves an identifiable 'broken' rhythmic style that mixes in and out with all sorts of chaotic sound. An exciting and powerful CD, it provides a glimpse of what is yet to come.

A BlipVert live show is a completely different story altogether. In a live setting, the songs take on twisted lives of their own as Will constantly mixes and improvises, morphing his own work into bizzare structures that provide backdrops for jamming along with Nigerian udu drums, or loops that create entirely new compositions on the spot. Will is not simply an electronic musician that lets the laptop run. Inspired by the experimentation and daring of such jazz greats as John Coltrane and Charles Mingus, Will aims for a BlipVert concert to not only reflect the spirit of the music but the excitement and creativity of improvisation as well. Will also incorporates instrumental components into his sets, as he plays guitar (his primary instrument) and sometimes employs a drummer to add elements of free jazz and thrash prog freakouts to his sets.

Currently, Will lives in Oakland, California and has just released a new EP on Brooklyn's Trixy Records. In addition, a BlipVert single (Big Boy Slip) was released in July 2007 on the Dutch label Eat Concrete, alongside such artists as Daedelus and Low Res.

Will is planning for his second BlipVert release to be even better and more extreme than the first, expanding on his ideas of fractured dancefloor rhythms and instrumental jams a la the Ruins and Sun Ra.
