 "Fortyone is a rigorous, and only incidentally anonymous, composer of aleatoric music; building sample-based songs in the vein of collage-pop auteur Otis Fodder and the Bran Flakes, he churns through thrift store records and other finds in order to assemble a bank of samples he could imagine using. After only a single pass through each haul, he’s collected his samples and will not revisit individual albums to consider new sounds; he does no repeat listens during his scrutiny, no rewinds, no backtracking of any kind. Among the pratfalls of this process, '...the tracks appear on albums in the order I make them, so I'm often hoping I'll have enough drum, instrument, or vocal samples left for later on in an album. I have to keep this in mind as I make the album, [because] it's never concrete...' Though none of his own compositions take their structure from sampled works, lyrics and repeated themes occasionally seem to cohere into narratives. His current 'life’s work' is a Gnostic canon enshrined at, mapping his progress toward forty one releases composed according to the 'Fortyone process'.
