Infinite Body – Carve Out the Face of My God

April 12, 2010

Post #33.  Infinite BodyCarve Out the Face of My God.  I can’t claim to know the exact way you should interpret this album, but I can share with you how I have interpreted it and how it affects me emotionally.  First, read the song titles.

1. Dive

2. A Fool Persists

3. What They Wanted to be Was Useless

4. Out to Where I Am

5. On Our Own to Fall Off

6. Beside me in the Dawn

7. Sunshine

8. Lived on it’s Knees (for Matt)

9. He Runs without Feet and Holds without Hands

10. Drive Dreams Away

11. Carve Out the Face of My God

I do not know if Kyle Parker, creator of Infinite Body, is a Christian or even if he believes in a Higher Power.  His song titles, however, are strongly evocative of Christian Theology and belief in a God who is all-powerful, all-present, and personal.  Some songs seem to be conveying grand ideas while others are reminiscent of church music with organs and strings.  This is, perhaps, Parker’s attempt to sculpt his understanding of God with music, and it may just be Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel of electronic music. (Another element that may be a stretch in interpretation is that each song seems incomplete and trails off or fades away, and if this were man’s attempt to describe an Infinite Being it would be appropriate to acknowledge his inability to do so completely).

Even without a Theological interpretation the music is powerful and can be enjoyed by anyone who is willing to slow down and let the music pass over and through them.  There are no obvious melodies, hooks, or drum beats, but this is well worth your time.  I hope you enjoy it.
