about

Believe it or not, there was a time when Libythth put effort into entertaining live audiences.

It used an elaborate hardware setup involving a lot of bulky equipment MIDI'd together, running off of floppy discs, triggered by footswitches, modulated by an infrared sensor, and performed with wooden sticks on a percussion pad by drummer Qrqyt Ixoteptek (current whereabouts unknown).

Since most bars and clubs in Los Angeles at the time preferred their live acts to be clutching guitars while performing music, Libythth had a hard time getting gigs. So it played anywhere else that would have it, going off at odd venues such as a vegan restaurant, a loft owned by former electronics retailer Crazy Gideon, and a museum of fake bigfoot artifacts. One of Libythth's favorite shows took place on November 29th, 2001 when it performed all the songs on this album for a house full of mushroom-stuffed USC music students. Parts of that performance appear on this album.

This album showcases the expleptic drumming style of Qrqyt Ixoteptek in a series of triple-fried, odd-metered stompers that don't sound like anything else.

Ixoteptek was previously released in 2002 with a different title and artwork both on the web and as a limited edition CDR. This version is better.

about

Libythth Los Angeles, California

Libythth was bornt in 1993 from a grim and frothy pool of unpleasant synth patches.

The profound impact Libythth had on electronic music is purely theoretical and the full prunt of its influence on countless nonexistent artists will never be measured.

We occupy an inaccessible hidden level and you probably shouldn’t be here.

We are unbeknownstmost.
