Welcome to the Cerebral Mix Episode 16: In The Beginning, Part 3
This week we take a final journey into the Early Works of Andrew
Andrew is many things: a freegan, musician, philosopher, and extreme
individual. A look through his blog contains articles about water cars,
David Icke interview videos about humanity, James Fox on the BP Oil
Spill, and how Food is the equivalent of crack.
Either because or in spite of these opinions, Andrew’s musical works
become more interesting. It becomes clear with just looking through a
few of the releases he has made that he doesn’t follow conventions.
So, let’s take that last step into the unconventional soundscapes of
Andrew Cauthen on The CerebralMix.
All of the works on this weeks show were released under the artist name:
Rumored High Speed Rail Hub, and come from the collections entitled:

I’m honestly not certain how to reconcile Andrew’s music after seeing
some of his writing. On one hand, I could see his writing as being
similar to a “shock jock” style of blogging – trying to use extreme
opinions in order to make us all think about ourselves and our place in
society and the world. And, along the way, making us laugh at ourself.
On the other hand, I could take him at his literal word, and think that
he is almost an alien to our culture and society.
Either way, it’s his extreme opinions and views that inform his music.
While I think of him as something of an “outsider musician” (along the
lines of outsider artists), he brings a lot of his own values to his
music. And it’s those values that make his work worth listening to.
That’s all for this week. I hope you will join me again next week for
another adventure into the sounds between thoughts on The Cerebral Mix.
