WITCHH▲US

I’ve been looking into WITCHH▲US, partly because the sound and visual aesthetic is related to what we’re doing with Samekhmem, partly because I find the use of coded language interesting:

witch-havs

There’s a good overview in the Pitchfork article: Ghosts in the machine

I’m interested in the way there’s a glitching and stuttering of language in the names

“the deliberately under-the-radar approach of its leading lights (oOoOO, †‡†, Gr†ll Gr†ll, ℑ⊇◊⊆ℜ, GL▲SS †33†H, ‘†∆†, etc) who have opted to make their names either unGoogleable or unpronounceable.”

“the bands whose /\/ /\ /\/\ € $ are made out of $¥ /\/\ ß 0 \ $”

This also relates to my interest in l337
