DOCTOR ELLIS is a dark musical experiment, a soundtrack to a film that doesn’t exist. Electronic, creepy and atmospheric, the project floated to the surface of the strange waves created by Northern Ontario broadcasting pirates, Radio Konton. Personnel consists of plunderphonic producer Kid Mania, pirate radio selector DJ Deadzone and the Chapman stick artist Jason Brock.
Born in the often arcane landscape of the Canadian Shield, Doctor Ellis has no qualms venturing into the musical wilderness. Stylistically speaking, the project flirts with ambient music, shadowy electronica, vinyl crackle, garbled voices, sweeping ominous synth, and all manner of rustling noises—unpredictable audio motions that twist and swirl to create an overwhelming sense of disorientation. One of the central devices utilized in this sonic psychosis is the Chapman stick, an unusual instrument everyone has heard but few recognize. Devised by Emmett Chapman in the early 1970s, in the hands of Doctor Ellis the Chapman stick’s unique sounds produce a truly unusual auditory experience.
