Well this is deliciously conceptual fare from Young Echo man Sam Kidel. The notion of hold muzak should be all too familiar in the modern age, and Disruptive Muzak sees the artist totally flip the concept on its head. In its simplest terms this album is the result of a prolonged programme of Kidel phoning up various government hotlines, playing his 'ambient muzak' compositions down the line and recording their oh so amusing befuddled responses. That's how the near 20 minute lead track plays out, whilst the accompanying DIY version features only the music should you, the listener, be inspired to try Kidel's methods out yourselves the next time you are left holding on the phone.
