about

A quirky sonic voyage, a collage of music with prerecorded voices acting like a narrative, an adventurous lo-fi headphones trip, humorous, moving, captivating. Avant Garde: Sound Collage.
"Helland is yet another accomplished ex-punk from the `80's who has made the striking transition to atmospheric soundtracks." Jack Rabid/Big Takeover Magazine
Scott Helland - Hellbox Mood Rings CD 1996: "Helland recognized the verite of the phone message and uses it as a jumping-off point for two releases- Mood Rings and (1999's) Motion Sickness, the latter using additional sources...for voices. The result is an interesting collage of music with prerecorded voices acting like a narrative. In a sense, which I can't explain, the music acts in accordance with the "narration" - music becoming total background while voices act as storytellers." Jim Lange WVPR
