Dig City Records

Neophobia is a meditative saga which, despite the name, radically embraces the aesthetics and methods of post-modernity. In between identical gamelan pieces, Chalk weaves an abrasive collage of sounds and musics that touch on peace punk, musique concrète, & American primitive. Neophobia explores the schizophrenia and horror of living in the contemporary era, and odyssey with an indeterminate point of departure or return. 

Chalk is an amorphous musical project orchestrated by Barry Elkaninck (Institute, Blue Dolphin). While this is Barry’s “solo project” he regularly invites friends, other musicians and artists to accompany him. Under “Chalk” Barry has self-released 8 cassettes since 2015. While wildly ranging in recording techniques & approach, the cassettes have informed and culminated in the final sound present onNeophobia which is his first LP for Post Present Medium. Barry wrote and recorded Neophobiaindependently out of his home in Houston, TX on computers and tape machines.
