Premiere: Listen to Prism House's maximalist sound collage 'In A Cage'

The latest single from the Brooklyn-based duo finds beauty amid an unforgiving soundscape.

Prism House is the duo of Brian Wenner (music/live electronics) and Matt O’Hare (live visuals). Their latest single, ‘In A Cage’, has all the paranoia that its title suggests. It begins with an ambient smattering of indecipherable samples, gives way to a techno-industrial barrage of percussion, briefly pauses to catch its breath, and then turns back on itself for exhilarating effect.

In a recent interview with Vice, Wenner revealed that he’s an unapologetic sampler of the Internet (“The internet is easier to find sounds than going to a record shop and digging through crates. The internet is a limitless crate.”), and on ‘In A Cage’, he seems to have repurposed a good chuck of it.

Stream ‘In A Cage’ below, and check out the cover art and tracklist for Prism House’s debut EP, Reflections, which is due out on March 5 via Ceremony Recordings.
