It was a spin on similar techniques Kirby employed on rave and pop music in his main project V/Vm, but he later grew inspired by neurodegenerative diseases and studies on the positive effects of playing patients music from their youth. Like the end of The Shining, the “ghosts and memories” are taking over, and it’s as difficult to watch as it is to look away. One of our natural responses to things like that has always been to turn them into art, but there’s always a risk of pale romanticization. Named after the job title of Jack Nicholson’s doomed protagonist in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, Kirby sampled old Jazz Age 78s to make the kind of eerily distorted dance tunes you could imagine haunting the Overlook Hotel.
