Description:

Terrible At Small Talk is the most recent moniker evolved from Fertanish. The new name reflects an evolution to free experimental music, absent of vocals and blessed with a disintegration of common musical structure. Terrible At Small Talk’s first release, The Abandoned Express Doubts, is initially a composition of chaos that accepts peaceful interludes. As it continues, contentment becomes the focus while chaos is welcomed as a supportive friend to maintain balance. There are no simple descriptions of this music; it will never be praised in casual conversation. For you, I have composed an offering of contentment in music and noise.

Composition for WTW8800YW0 is included as an EP in the 2-disc set of Abandoned. Recorded in 2018, WTW8800YW0 audibly documents a repair job of replacing a bearing rod in an washing machine. When I took on a labor-intensive effort, I decided to record every noise I made for eventual use in this song. This was remarkably peaceful, knowing that every harsh sound would eventually be turned into something wonderful.
