Cameron Morse is a Montreal-based musician whose experiments first created waves as half of Littlebabyangel’s 2015 album Gada - released as a mixtape within an email chain letter. Following a standout remix on Jacques Greene’s Dawn Chorus, his debut ep expresses a political motive behind Cameron’s practice: his music, fashion design, writing and digital painting.
Morse considers The Truth Is part of a years-long project named Anthropocene: a blog and upcycled clothing experiment to challenge fast fashion. Through single editions of garments carrying blunt, factual typographic prints he badges a tiny community of fashion consumers aware of their role in consumption and desire. The work is aggressively direct and aims to create a waypoint for people feeling unable to contribute to the body politic.
The Truth Is employs the stems of todays DIY bedroom producer to express our milieu: catharsis thru hacked poly synth, drum machine, electric guitar and voice. Where ambient music has become synonymous with commerce and productivity, Cameron’s textures tune-out and drop-in suspending themselves in air. Doomer vacuity beyond the body: this stunning record expresses the loss of meaning in the modern world and begs we move together towards our potential future.
