Hailing from New York, Hypertrophy is the conceptual noise project of Anthony Saunders (Bastard Noise, EID) centered on the themes of body building and power lifting. An avid power lifter himself, Saunders draws on the cultures of extreme exercise and channels it through a highly technical approach to cut up techniques and harsh noise textures. On “Fitness is…”, Saunders remixes field recordings of Planet Fitness locations from the “Live from the no judgement zone” box set (with a few Planet Fitness commercials thrown in to the mix) in a way that highlights, amplifies, and reframes the sonic environment of the gym. In doing so, Saunders creates an entirely new landscape, one simultaneously familiar and alien in equal parts.
