Cameron Morse is a Montreal based musician and visual artist whose experimental production and art direction first created waves as half of Littlebabyangel with their cult 2015 release Gada - a mixtape circulated via email chain letter, laterally reviewed by Pitchfork who said it “...feels like entering the eye of a hurricane”. Following up with a standout remix on Jacques Greene’s Dawn Chorus and two tracks for the celebrated LUCKYME® Advent Calendar compilations - The Truth Is fully reveals the political impetus behind Cameron’s artistic practice: his music, fashion design, writing and digital painting.
Cameron considers The Truth Is part of a years-long self initiated project named Anthropocene: an upcycled clothing experiment meant to end fast fashion. Through single editions of garments, we can literally produce an individual personal style. But those garments carry blunt, factual typographic prints which badge us within a micro community proudly aware of consumption, desire, commerce and inequality. The work aims to create a waypoint for people feeling unable to contribute to the body politic.
On The Truth Is, the stems of todays bedroom producer - hacked poly synth, drum machine, electric guitar and voice - gel to express our milieu. These textures tune-out and drop-in: suspending themselves in the air of a room for our generation to externalise doomer vacuity beyond the body. Projected out of you, let’s start by looking at the problem: then it might be clearer for us to move forward. This stunning EP expresses the loss of meaning within the modern world and begs we move together towards our potential future.
