DAISYHEROIN is evolving into one of Seattle’s most interesting double-threat artists. His visual MO is surrealism run amok: pop-culture détournement, hilariously illogical nightmare scenarios, frequent defacements and decapitations, and weird shit streaming from eye sockets. Daisy Heroin’s imagery is geared to freak you out and laugh yourself comatose, and his accompanying electronic soundtracks under the name T equal the visuals’ hallucinogenic preposterousness.
DAISYHEROIN is creating stop-motion videos that, with their surreal irreverence for pop-culture effluvia and high art, recall the work of Paper Rad, Black Dice, and Monty Python’s Flying Circus animator Terry Gilliam. DH’s style of jerky movements, stream of hallucinatory absurdities, and stimuli overload complements the clips’ supremely strange and abstract electronic music, which he also composes under the handle T. His soundtrack’s as chilling and jarring as Mort Garson and Morton Subotnick’s trippiest compositions.
