Pattern Completion is the debut album from San Francisco-based contemporary artist MICHAEL WOOD as Redredred. Previously recording as one half of PRIMARY COLORS, Wood started his Redredred project in 2012. Taking inspiration from Front 242, Einsturzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle, Nietzsche and Sartre, Wood utilizes a simple setup of vintage analog synthesizers and drum machines, and records them on reel-to-reel. Pattern Completion was originally planned as a 4 song cassette EP that was only released digitally. This new full length features those four tracks, remixed and remastered on the A Side, and four unreleased tracks on the B side. The material on Pattern Completion is strongly influenced by Wood's former live/work studio space in the Bayview District of San Francisco, an area surrounded by recycling facilities and water treatment plants. The songs reflect this industrial atmosphere, stacking treated rhythm box patterns, quivering synthesizers, and mechanical vocals. Pattern Completion develops the strain of futuristic, mutant industrial pioneered by San Francisco groups like Tuxedomoon and Factrix, with Redredred adding his own brand of damaged angular rhythms. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a jacket featuring photography by MELISSA JOY BRENNER and contains a double sided insert 11x11 with lyrics.
