The title of this new album by London duo Project Mycelium refers to their methods of arranging instrumentation (piano, cello) and found sounds into loose narratives, producing what they call "mundane scenes". These scenes are unspecified events and references, flattened into strange, eerie collages. Though a theme of mundaneness sounds like a risk of tedium, the album draws aesthetic qualities out of the short-lived nuances of everyday experience. Unrelated contexts and subjects align and bring about strange new thematic textures before dispersing. At times, it is humorous, at others disorientating or vague as if in daydream; at still others pensive and even seedy. Ultimately, Mundane Behaviour is an unhurried, unpredictable and voyeuristic series of accidental stories and spaces.
Based in London, Project Mycelium consists of Luke Brennan and Lorenzo Santangeli. To date, they also have two EPs on Linear Obsessional Recordings and have appeared on various compilations. They gig now and then, playing live scores and original compositions.
