Subconscious Self Sabotage is a collaborative release between 1000 Petal Lotus and Angus Tarnawsky. These two artists met and became friends while both living in Vancouver BC between 2016-17. Originally, 1000 Petal Lotus asked Tarnawsky to remix some of his recordings for a video project. The collaboration eventually morphed into a live performance built around samples made from the composition used in the video. This next evolution—1-10—is not really a track; it represents fragments of a process and exists in the tradition of records as "tools." The spontaneous and unpredictable nature of this whole approach is most apparent on the physical version of this release; a 7" lathe cut record (edition of 25) featuring 10 locked grooves that are slightly different between editions. The digital version captures these same grooves (from one record) but is an inherently fixed entity. The records themselves are living objects; each locked groove will loop differently from one record to the next.
