about

In 2002, Jason Kahn published mattresslessness on his Swiss imprint called "cut".  It represents some of Jason Lescalleet's earliest solo work and an album that stands as a unique representation of experimental music bridging genres of lowercase music, electronic music, tape music, minimal glitch, and the grey area of American noise.  This album shows Lescalleet sharpening his tools and cutting his teeth as these aforementioned genres of music were evolving in the new age of the internet.

Fifteen years later, we bring you this document not only to shine a light on the beginning of Lescalleet's career as a composer but to also demonstrate that some of these early traits have remained in his repertoire as a testament to the timelessness of classic experimental sound work.
