about

In 2008, Chase created a 32-minute musical loop from filter modulated radio white noise with Neighborhood Public Radio at the Whitney Bienneal: 1=xx_√=<tºr was born.

Inspired by African rhythms, 1=xx_√=<tºr (Lexx Vector) hai•ku is post-human funkadelica. Generated from white-noise instruments and noise samples made in Chase/Vector's studio, each cut on hai•ku is an improvised mashup of pattern grids in 7, 12, 9, 5, 3, 15 and occasionally 4 with the underpinning pulse of each 'song' alternating between 5, 7, and back to 5 - like the lines of a haiku poem.

With catchy rhythms, and funky grooves, hai•ku has been used at fashion runway shows. New York Experimental Sound artist, N_Drew calls hai•ku "minimal - sophisticated - I LIKE It! "
