Hipster Hunter is constructed mostly of deconstructed sounds. The focus of the work is motive, form, and cell structure. Aesthetically, Hipster Hunter represents the ongoing battle of the car vs. humans on bicycles, which is a real issue in the city I lived in for five years - Atlanta, Ga. Some bicyclists seemed fearless when riding through heavy traffic. Sadly, many people on both sides are injured from the lack of awareness. In an abstract manner, Hipster Hunter presents a story of a particular social debacle, and I tried to capture that story.
